Marchant Real Estate volunteers with Habitat for Humanity
Greenville’s Marchant Real Estate recently worked alongside Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a family of five in Greer. Seven volunteers from Marchant served as a team to set door frames, clean floors, and measure, cut, and lay baseboards in the Greer home, which is almost move-in ready.
For the past five years, the firm has helped Habitat for Humanity provide housing for low-income Greenville families. “Our job as a community is to come together and serve one another. This is a great example of what can be accomplished when we work cooperatively together with a common goal in mind,” Seabrook Marchant, president and broker in charge, said in a news release.

Project HOPE Foundation announces new campus location; generous supporters donate land and school building
Nonprofit Project HOPE Foundation plans to open its seventh campus this fall in Landrum to better offer its “lifespan of services” to the autism community with the help of some generous donors. Tab and Laurin Patton purchased the property in Landrum as an investment and decided to give the entire property — a former private school and 30 acres — to Project HOPE Foundation.
The property will permanently house the Hope Academy and Bridging the Gap classes. The move will also provide room to expand the Hope Alive Junior and Hope Alive programs at HOPE’s Woodruff campus. “We are so incredibly grateful to the Pattons for this generous gift, which makes it possible for us to move into real school space — quickly, and without debt — and still leaves us plenty of room to grow,” co-founder and co-executive director Susan Sachs said in a news release.
