Members of BB Industries came together with the members of the Knoxville Habitat For Humanity on the morning of October 30th to volunteer and donate some of their time for a good deed. Despite the threat of rain, the task at hand was straight-forward: level the foundation and lay the floor, raise the walls, add a roof and shingle – with lots of nailing and effort added in.

Despite the cool weather, everyone who came out was prepared and ready to work, and the eager participation of all made it fun. In record time, a neat little outdoor shed was completed for a deserving Knoxville family. 

This Habitat project recipient is Candice Canty and her son, Daran. Candace is an amazing mother and woman who has been passionate about children and their enrichment since she was a teenager. While raising her son, Candice worked on her career path and grew professionally from a summer camp counselor to Recreational Specialist at a city recreational center.

Daran, Candice’s son, has always been an active boy and is looking forward to having his own yard to practice in. One of the first things  Candice plans on doing is getting her son a basketball goal of his own so he can practice at home.

Candice serves her community by nurturing children to help them grow into passionate citizens of our community. Now, Central Baptist Bearden, First Baptist Church of Knoxville and Publix Charities will gather around this family and help them continue to build their future in a positive way.

We’re sure that Candice and Daran will enjoy their new home and yard, and have many happy years there.
