Operation Home announces the 2nd Annual Gimme Shelter presented by Home Team BBQ and Fat & Juicy on Saturday, May 12th at 6pm at the Navy Yard at Noisette, 10 Storehouse Row. The Big Easy comes to the Lowcountry with lively entertainment, funky music from Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe and a taste of New Orleans. Prepared by Home Team BBQ Executive Chef Aaron Siegel, the menu is complete with a Crawfish Boil, Jambalaya, Mini Po-Boys, Red Beans and Rice as well as plenty of Hurricanes and more. Tickets are $50 in advance or $60 at the door. Shuttle Hogs will provide transportation from drop offs for a minimal fee where half of fare is donated to Operation Home.
Operation Home’s mission is to help low-income residents of the tri-county area remain in their homes by increasing safety and accessibility through the coordination of critical home repairs. They not only make sure they restore and repair in order to leave things in working order, but also that their work doesn’t need to be redone for many years to come. Even the screws and bolts are reinforced using Industrial Washers. The structure, along with anything else they have to fix around the home, will last for many years, leaving the people living in these homes free to tend to other matters, like their jobs and raising their children. This is because their work focuses on the people the most in need including households that contain children, people with disabilities or older adults. Operation Home is committed to ensuring that no person has to live in a home that is inaccessible or dangerous.
