Habitat for Humanity plans hearty treat for volunteers
December 28, 2010
Habitat for Humanity of East King County has planned a Chilly Chili Challenge volunteer event at the Habitat construction site in the Issaquah Highlands. Volunteers chow down on a hot lunch of chili, soup and other goodies donated by local businesses and churches. There’s also a raffle for prizes 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.
The highlands construction site is at 2500 N.E. Magnolia Ave. Volunteers can register at www.habitatekc.org.

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