On Wednesday April 3, 2013, at 1:00 p.m., a press conference and house dedication will be held at the renovated home of Mrs. Mary Davis of 1314 Woodrow Street in Columbia, SC. Mrs. Davis, a recent amputee, is the widow of World War II Veteran PRC Solomon Davis.

Mrs. Davis, confined to a wheelchair and how as a result of being denied her husband’s military benefits earlier this year, was living in substandard conditions that jeopardized her health, and kept her confined to her more than 100 year old house.

However, with the help of various community organizations and individuals, including the United States Marines, renovations began on our Mrs. Davis' house on February 28th, 2013.

Due to the age of the house, our team of volunteers and workers basically did a total makeover the entire house including but not limited to electricity, insulation, plumbing, masonry, and landscaping. Among the many features that will be unveiled at the renovated Davis home are American Disability Act (ADA) accessible features.

During the course of the month long renovations, several businesses, individuals, and organizations have been quite generous with their donations of materials, appliances, funding, Lodging for the family and workers, and food for the volunteers. It is our intent to recognize these people at the home dedication and on our Facebook Page

Additionally, we would like to thank the media f and community at large for their contributions in furthering this important community project.

For more information on this event, interested parties may donations, volunteering contact Kathy Dent ((803)960-2501,, Gabriella Carrafiello ((914)906-1454,, or Keith Seymour ((803)-960-8785,
