The Partnership to receive Habitat playhouse from Belk at Southpoint
Posted on 04.16.2014, Wednesday

All four Triangle-area Belk stores recently partnered with Durham Habitat’s Playhouse Program, and the Partnership is the proud recipient of the playhouse built by the wonderful team of staff volunteers from Belk at the Streets at Southpoint.

The Habitat Playhouse Program is a collaborative effort of local corporations, the community and Habitat volunteers who together build and donate playhouses for local families and service organizations that work with children. Belk has donated $2,500 for each playhouse to offset the cost of building materials to fund the construction of other Habitat projects.

Last week, during Week of the Young Child, we had a chance to visit the Belk store and see their volunteers’ handiwork. Patrick Hannah, Partnership Board of Directors, and Krissy Dunn, Operations Specialist and Volunteer Manager at the Partnership, joined Shelley Ifert, Store Manager, and Mark McCall, Assistant Store Manager, for the dedication. The playhouse will be on display for the next several weeks.

We are thrilled to be the recipient of their hard work and look forward to seeing this playhouse in use in our community. We are also partnering with our friends at Southpoint for Belk’s Charity Day on May 3rd and have tickets for sale for $5. The tickets give customers entry to the private event (6am-10am on Sat. May 3rd) as well as $5 off their first purchase, and all store merchandise will be discounted at 20-70% off. If you are interested in purchasing a ticket, please contact Krissy Dunn at krissy@dpfc.net.
