Very few people have been involved with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County since it was founded in 1984. Bob Herrington is one of them.

Bob’s late wife, Margaret, helped form the Orange County affiliate and served on the first Board of Directors. Even after his wife passed away in 2000, Bob honored her legacy through his continued support of the organization.

The mission of Habitat has always resonated with Bob. Remembering his days as a pediatrician at UNC Hospitals, he commented, “It grieved me to see people I worked with every day have to scratch to make a living.” He lamented that he was able to enjoy the benefits of being a part of this community while others couldn’t even afford to live in Orange County.

Bob’s commitment over the years has helped to change that reality for many families in our community.
