Dear Habitat for Humanity supporter,

I am writing to provide an update about the measures Habitat for Humanity of Craven County is taking to protect our staff, volunteers and the people we serve during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

These measures are based on guidance from Habitat for Humanity International and local, state and national public health authorities. We are continually monitoring the situation, and our approach may change as new guidance is provided.

Given the current circumstances in our area, our builds and repair work will continue. In addition, our ReStore will remain open. We will send out additional updates as conditions change.

While we continue to move forward, we do ask that if you feel unwell or have traveled recently to one of the areas designated by the CDC as level 3 or on a cruise ship, you should refrain from joining a Habitat event or build/repair or visiting a Habitat ReStore or office. Similarly, if a member of your household has potentially been exposed to the virus through travel or other means, seek medical guidance and refrain from participating in any Habitat-related events, including volunteering or shopping in our ReStore.

We realize your health is your top priority. Should you decide not to volunteer as previously planned, please let us know so that we can adjust our plans accordingly.

In the meantime, please familiarize yourself with advice from the World Health Organization on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Please know that we are constantly monitoring the situation and will update our plans as new details emerge. Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this public health crisis together.

In partnership,

Mike Williams
Executive Director
