Wingard’s Market Donates Plants for New Habitat for Humanity Homes

Lexington, S.C. – Wingard’s Market, the Midlands premier full-service garden and plant center, is now working hand-in-hand with Central South Carolina Habitat for Humanity. The Lexington garden center is donating plants, flowers, and additional landscaping to as many as six new homes built in the Midlands this year.

Wingard’s will donate plants, and the well-trained staff will assist the Habitat team with selections for each house built this year, including the first two this month.

“We have always been impressed with the hard work and great craftsmanship that Habitat provides for these new homeowners,” Wingard’s Market Co-Owner Wally Steinhauser said. “Not every plant is going to make it every type of soil, so it’s important we get the right plant that also looks great. We care about this community and want these homeowners to experience happiness when they walk in the door.”

Central South Carolina Habitat for Humanity has been serving the Midlands for 36 years and have helped more than 270 families across the Midlands become homeowners. The group uses a small staff, volunteers and community partners to build six houses a year.

“We are so excited for the new partnership with Wingard’s Market,” said Habitat for Humanity Homeowner Services Manager Emily Fernald. “The individuals and families that complete the Central South Carolina Habitat for Humanity program, put in over 300 hours of sweat equity, homebuyer workshops, and financial planning. For them to not only be able to see their dream of homeownership come true, but see it as the beautiful picture they’ve always imagined through the landscaping provided by Wingard’s, just makes it that much more special.”
