No fooling: Habitat fundraiser is April 1; volunteers needed

Tuesday, April 1, Habitat for Humanity of Rowan County will hold its barbecue chicken fundraiser at the Salisbury Civic Center. More than 5,000 meals will be available for sale. Dinners will be served from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
There will be plenty of seating available for persons who wish to eat at the Civic Center. Drive through take-out service is also available. The cost of a meal is $8 and includes half a 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 needs cakes to be donated and also needs 200 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 contact the Habitat Volunteer Coordinator by phone, 704-642-6292 extension 101, or they may come to the Civic Center on the day of the event. Donated cakes will be received at the Civic Center the day before and the day of the event. All people are welcomed 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 its inception as an all-volunteer, grassroots organization in 1990, Habitat for Humanity of Rowan County has successfully completed the building of 105 homes in our community. More houses are currently under construction.
