CAMPOBELLO, SC (FOX Carolina) - A group of Spartanburg County high
school students and volunteers with Carpenters for Christ unveiled a Campobello
woman's new home Tuesday, one year after her home burned down.
The volunteers and well-wishers
gathered for a "Move That Bus" revealing and dedication service for
Brenda Hurst Tuesday afternoon.
Hurst is a custodian at Boiling
Springs High School. She lost her home in a fire in June 2014, but she has had help for several months getting her new home rebuilt thanks to the community.
Students at the high school launched
a fundraising effort to rebuild Hurst's home and later partnered with the
nonprofit organization Carpenters for Christ, who oversaw the construction.
On Tuesday, Hurst's students,
friends, family and members from the more than 90 businesses who donated
materials and services, were on hand as Hurst was shown the home for the first
“This is just awesome, God is good,”
Area high school students pitched in
to build the house as part of an on-the-job training program at Swofford
Hurst's new home is a 2 bedroom, 2
bath home with open kitchen and carport. Hurst says her favorite feature is her
bedroom's large closet.
“It's humongous. It's really big and
it's got so much storage space,” said Hurst..
