Richland County Bar Association brings “Buildable Hours” project

Contributed by Richland County Bar Association

The Richland County Bar Association is partnering with Central South Carolina Habitat for Humanity for a project geared specifically towards the legal community.

“The Buildable Hours project started in Washington, D.C. and has been adopted by a large number of firms from across the country,” said Ian McVey, Richland County Bar Association president.

The Habitat build will start Monday, May 20 in a downtown Columbia parking lot located at 1010 Lady Street. Volunteers from various legal organizations will be working at the Vista location until Friday, May 24 before the house is transported to its final destination.

“Parking lot builds have become quite popular these days as many groups are eager to show the community how they are giving back,” said Habitat executive director, Roy Kramer.
