Habitat BBQ fundraiser is April 1

On April 1, Habitat for Humanity of Rowan County will have its Port-a-Pit barbecue chicken fundraiser at the Salisbury Civic Center.
More than 7,500 meals will be available for sale that Tuesday at the Salisbury Civic Center on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.
Dinners will be served from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Plenty of seating is available for those who wish to eat at the Civic Center. Drive-through, take-out service is also available.
The $7 meal includes a half-chicken, slaw, potato salad, dessert and a roll. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to build Habitat houses in Rowan County for families in need.
Habitat also counts on the donation of 700 cakes or pies for dessert and the time of 100 volunteers to work the food line, serve tables, slice cakes and deliver large orders to factories and worksites.
Persons wishing to volunteer are asked to call the Habitat volunteer coordinator at 704-642-6292, or they may come to the Civic Center on the day of the event.
Donated cakes and pies can be delivered to the Civic Center the day before and the day of the event. All people are welcome to participate.
Habitat for Humanity of Rowan County is an ecumenical Christian ministry dedicated to the elimination of substandard housing. Habitat is founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety.
Since it’s inception as an all-volunteer, grassroots organization in 1990, Habitat for Humanity of Rowan County has successfully completed the building of 69 homes in our community. Three more houses are currently under construction.
“Our community is indeed blessed by the efforts of Habitat volunteers, for they help to make Rowan County a more caring and healthy place to live,” said Coleman Emerson, executive director of Habitat’s Rowan chapter.
