Non-Profit HomeWorks Needs New Warehouse

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A non-profit that repairs homes across the Midlands says the warehouse they've called home for the past decade has been sold, and they need to new place to store their supplies.

"We are in desperate condition," said HomeWorks founder Hank Chardos.

Everything the organization uses to make old homes new is stored in a warehouse HomeWorks has used for the past decade.

To clear it out, Chardos estimates it will take 30 to 40 trailer loads and two days. The problem is, they have not found anywhere to move all that equipment to.

"The warehouse has now been sold. So, in a matter of 3 weeks, we have to pick up our wonderful tools and supplies and everything else and we need to have them in a new location," said Sharon W. Bryan, Chairman of the Home Works Advisory Board.

The board discussed options at a meeting Tuesday, but says most are too expensive.

The organization says a run down and abandoned warehouse would do the trick. With their equipment inside, they'd make improvements and take away what could be an eyesore in the community.

"I can't believe there is not someone out there that has connection to a building that you've driven by or looked at and thought what a shame that that building is empty," Bryan said.
