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.
