Habitat for Humanity Yard Sale

The goal is to raise $5,000 for Habitat and this build project.

Please contact Jane Blackman 210-889-7932 or Chris Fish 704-451-5329 to schedule a time for item dropoff or to volunteer to help with the sale.

Working on site on a Habitat build is a very fun and rewarding experience, and a great way to invite people into the life of our church.
