Great support for Clay Habitat

Habitat for Humanity of Clay County is very grateful to everyone who blessed us with    their support for our fish fry and silent auction April 13. Together we reached our goal of raising $2,500 to be matched by the Wabash Valley Community Foundation Grant. You made it possible for us to turn $2,500 into $5,000.

We received excellent publicity from the Brazil Times, Clay City News and Tribune-Star. Terre Haute First and Riddell Bank put the event on their kiosks. Churches and businesses kindly shared the information. The result was wonderful attendance from our community. We also appreciate Terre Haute Savings Bank and Seasoned Wick for selling advance tickets.

Habitat sends a special thank-you to Peniel Church for sharing their tables and     chairs and all the churches and individuals who donated delicious desserts. Bowling Green United Methodist Church loaned their trays and had workers for the dessert tables which we appreciated. The Brazil National Guard Armory was great to work with for our event.

We appreciate donations from Jack's Fine Foods, Pepsi, Pilot McDonalds, First Financial Bank, and Riddell Bank. Long John Silvers also helped us.

We thank everyone who attended or worked to make the event a success. It was a team effort.

Our silent auction had many wonderful items and services from area businesses and individuals that were sincerely appreciated. Two talented individuals gave us items they made for the auction. An anonymous donor gave two beautiful quilts and a lovely afghan. Clifford Robertson made two creative squirrel feeders for us to auction.

Area businesses that donated to the silent auction were Fun Time Fitness, Olde     Homestead Shoppe, YMCA, Curves, Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, Hardee’s, Brazil Subway, Maurizio’s, Harmony Diner, Lynn’s, Dairy Queen, Coffee Grounds, Kroger, Natalie and Brian Pierce Perk Me Up Coffee, Mayberry Malt Shoppe, Pizza Gallery, Bob & Angie’s, Miller IGA, Burger King, Pilot McDonalds, Pilot Subway, Petro Restaurant, Timberland, Bob Burkle Ford, York Chevrolet & Buick, Bob Bowen Ford, Warren Tire, Mike’s Muffler, Hoosier Arms, Aerial Fireworks, NAPA, Brazilian Lanes, Brown’s Flying School, A+ Printing, Alicia Reed Thomas at Family Eye Care, Luxury Nail Salon, A Cut Above, Fiesta Salon, Reflections Salon, Stephanie Jeffers Lia Sophia Jewelry, Dr. Ross at Brazil Family Dentistry, Gary Nesty at World in Focus Eye Care, Old Fashioned Jewelry Shoppe, Lamb’s Mowing Service, Seasoned Wick, Sugar & Spice, and ISU Foundation.

Support was also given through donations by Six Flags, Indiana Ice, Caribbean Cove,     Kings Island, Indianapolis Indians, Cincinnati Reds, Indiana Fever, Steve Weatherford, kicker for the NFL Giants, and the Pacers.

Habitat will be building our eighth home with Angie O’Leary and her family at 703 S.     Chicago Ave. in Brazil. We are able to build because of the continuing support of our community. Your donations are evidence of “faith in action.” Your support is a blessing.
