Jimmy Carter speaking at kickoff celebration

The weeklong Millard Fuller Legacy Build is almost here and it looks like it will begin with a bang--and keep getting better from there!

The Fuller Center just announced that former president Jimmy Carter will be speaking at the Legacy Build Kickoff Celebration, Aug. 30 at 3:30 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time). Carter was a great supporter and friend of Millard Fuller, believing in his vision beginning in the early days of Habitat for Humanity.

The celebration will also feature Morris Dees, founder of Southern Poverty Law Center, and Millard's old business partner from his pre-Habitat and Fuller Center days. Dees will tell stories and share memories of his days with Millard.

Check back often as the build gets closer and all week long during the build Aug. 30-Sept. 5. We'll keep you updated with stories and announcements as the week of building houses for six families in Lanett unfolds.
