To the Editor:

Habitat for Humanity of Clay County is thankful for the wonderful community support for their yard sale and the Kroger Cruise-In, which took place July 14, 2012.

We appreciate those who donated items for the yard sale and the many people who made purchases.

A special thank you is extended to Clover Signs for allowing us to have the yard sale at their business location.

We also thank Brazil First United Methodist Church for loaning tables for the event.

Brazil Kroger employees, led by Jonathan Herbert, put on a terrific Cruise-In, with more than 30 entries.

They also sold food and beverages for the event.

Several local merchants made wonderful donations for door prizes.

We are pleased and thankful to have Kroger employees helping to raise money for Habitat.

We appreciate all those who participated and made contributions.

The Brazil Times, Clay City News, Terre Haute Tribune-Star, HI-99, Riddell National Bank and Clover Signs supported both fundraisers with publicity.

Several local businesses displayed our fliers.

We thank you for helping to make both events successful.

Habitat sincerely appreciates the continuing support for our mission to provide affordable housing to Clay County families.

All proceeds will be used to building our eighth home.

Cheryl Steuerwald,

Habitat for Humanity of Clay County
