Volunteer Team Needs Help
In Rebuilding Gutted House
Volunteers working to rebuild ihe home of a bunted out family in
the Shallottc area are in need of materials and additional labor.
Members of the Shallottc Point Volunteer Fire Department and Let
ties Grove Church arc working to rebuild the home of Estcllc lnman fol
lowing a June 2 fire that gutted the frame house on N.C. 179.
Mrs. lnman is staying temporarily with family members.
"It's just a hull," said Margie Milligan, whose husband, Maurice, is
pastor of Leuics Grove Church. "We had to tear everything out. We need
to completely rebuild it ? walls, ceilings, floors."
Since it must be rebuilt to current building code specifications, the
house will be better than before, said Mrs. Milligan.
This week volunteers expected to complete rewiring of the home
and flooring, but much remains to be done, she said, and the volunteers
arc low on resources.
"We welcome all the labor we can get as well as money," she said.
As of Monday the housing rehabilitation group had received S2.194,
which Mrs. Milligan was "not much to go on" given the scope of the pro
Needed arc donations of building supplies and household furnish
ings, or the money with which to purchase them.
Anyone interested in assisting is asked to contact the Milligans at
754-6913, the Shallotte Point VFD, or to send contributions directly to
the Estcllc lnman Fund, care of United Carolina Bank, Shallotte.
