MARSVHILLE – The Union County Habitat for Humanity recently dedicated two new four-bedroom, two-bath homes in the Gulf Bay Estates subdivision for Joel Ballew and his family at 105 Prosperity Lane and Melissa McDonald at 106 Prosperity Lane.
Ballew is a U.S. military veteran who served three tours of duty in Iraq and is now a Marshville police officer. Students, parents and staff from Weddington High School donated more than 1,200 hours to help build the home.
McDonald works for Rabon Insurance Agency in Monroe and her coworkers helped with the construction of her new home.
Both homes are 1,400 square feet and Energy Star rated, and meet the N.C. Healthy Built Homes standards, which promotes environmentally friendly, affordable housing.
