LowCountry Habitat for Humanity is celebrating World Habitat Day 2017 with a Habitat’s Kid2Kid Toy Sale.
Neighboring schools and churches are partnering with the organization to collect donations of new and gently used toys, which will be for sale at Habitat’s Kid2Kid Toy Sale.
The sale will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 4, at Sea Island Presbyterian Church on Lady’s Island Drive in Beaufort.
“LowCountry Habitat knows that our future lies in the hands of our children and future generations,” according to a release. “For this reason, we are committed to empowering children to make a difference in our society.
“Habitat’s Kid2Ked Toy Sale will allow local children from a wide variety of circumstances to get directly involved with Habitat’s mission and to see firsthand what they can do to make a difference.”
The goal of Habitat’s Kid2Kid Toy Sale is twofold: to increase involvement with local youth and to kick-start fundraising for the House That Kids Built.
Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
Habitat ReStores were developed to provide Habitat affiliates with another income stream for building houses while providing a place where still useful building materials and supplies can be recycled and gently-used home furnishings can be resold to new owners reducing the burden on local landfills.
