Habitat for Humanity grateful for sale success

Sunday, June 27, 2010

To the Editor:

Habitat for Humanity of Clay County recently had a yard sale to raise funds to help build a home for a Clay County family.

We want to thank all who helped make it a success.

We appreciate Clover Signs for providing the location, The Brazil Times and Clay City News for publicity, and the Brazil First United Methodist Church for loaning tables on which to display our sale items.

Several area businesses were kind enough to display our fliers for the event. We thank those who donated items, helped sell them and made purchases.

Our community continues to support Habitat for Humanity.

Thanks to our local businesses who display 2-by-4 wooden banks that provide an opportunity for patrons to share their change with Habitat.

Several churches have given generous donations to Habitat this year: St. John's United Church of Christ, Brazil First United Methodist Church, Center Point United Methodist Church, Mt. Calvary Methodist Church, First United Methodist Church of Clay City, First United Church of Christ, Zion United Church of Christ, Brazil Union United Methodist Church and Benwood/Mt. Lebanon Church.

Individual contributions have also been received.

We sincerely appreciate the thoughts, prayers and contributions of those who support Habitat for Humanity.

Cheryl Steuerwald,

Habitat for Humanity of

Clay County Board
