Nashville has been selected as the host city for the 36th annual Habitat for Humanity Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. On Oct. 3, Bonelaw attorneys Sam J. “Mac” McAllester III and Charles W. Bone joined Mayor David Briley, family, friends, local leaders and Habitat for Humanity for the groundbreaking celebration in the Park Preserve neighborhood of North Nashville.
World-renowned music superstars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have joined forces with the Carters to help bring 500 volunteers together to build 20 homes for low-income families in one week from Oct. 6 to 11, 2019. The 36th Annual Carter Work Project will help increase the inventory of homes in Park Preserve, a 42-acre community in North Nashville developed by Habitat.
There will be a total of 175 homes, serving 58 families when complete. The funding raised for the project has allowed an additional 12 new single family homes and 26 new townhomes to also be constructed by the year 2021. The anticipated 2019 Carter Work Project, alongside Habitat’s continued efforts throughout the year, will make a significant impact on affordable housing across Metro Nashville.
