Habitat for Humanity of East King County plans to kick off 2011 in hearty fashion.
The nonprofit organization has planned a Chilly Chili Challenge volunteer event at the Habitat construction site in the Issaquah Highlands. During the event, volunteers chow down on a hot lunch of chili, soup and other goodies donated by local businesses and churches. The community event also features a raffle for prize from local spas, bookstores, restaurants and the local Target.
The challenge is scheduled for every working Thursday in January and February.
Organizers said the Chilly Chili Challenge should help to continue the positive partnership between Habitat and the Issaquah community. Construction on the 10 duplexes in the highlands has benefited from neighbors and Issaquah businesses.
Issaquah Café, for instance, plans to donate chili Jan. 13 as part of the chili challenge.
The highlands construction site is located at 2500 N.E. Magnolia Ave. Habitat is in the process of accepting volunteers for upcoming construction.

The local Habitat affiliate has built, rehabilitated and repaired 107 houses in Issaquah, Bellevue, Carnation, Kirkland, Newcastle, Redmond, Sammamish and Snoqualmie since 1988.
