Casar, NC-- It's Thanksgiving and Christmas for one North Carolina, who can now celebrate both holidays in their new house.
Saturday, Volunteers with God's Pit Crew out of Danville, VA finish a home they built for the Braidwood family in Casar, NC. The crew took just 12 days to complete the house for the retired couple. Christine Braidwood and her husband spent over 30 years working with the deaf children of Haiti. When the time came for the couple to retire, they returned to America with practically nothing.
Nathan Galvez with God's Pit Crew (GPC) told WFMY News 2 that after hearing the Braidwood's story his organization decided to honor them by building them a brand new home and giving it to them entirely free.
The house was dedication at noon Saturday and the family were given the keys. Randy Johnson, founder and director of GPC, says that "it was an honor to be able to bless this very deserving couple and reward all of the years of hard work they did in Haiti."
God's Pit Crew is a crisis response organization that specializes in disaster response, product distribution and the occasional home build or rebuild.
