Habitat Mission Benefits From Local Fund Raiser

Posted on 25 April 2016 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Earlier this month, Heart of Iowa Habitat For Humanity conducted the official ground breaking ceremony for the next home that will be constructed in Boone.  It is the 26 home being built by the local chapter.  Leading up to the ground breaking on Sunday, April 17th, the Fareway and Hyvee Stores in Boone held a fundraiser, allowing customers to round up their bill to the next dollar and higher, then directing the extra money to Habitat for Humanity, to meet their mission to end substandard housing and poverty housing.

Erich Kretzinger, Executive Director for Heart of Iowa Habitat for Humanity, was recently presented with checks from HyVee Manager Fred French and Fareway Store Manager Wayne Lamoureux and Meat Department Manager Dave Patrick.  Kretzinger said that together, the two stores raised $833.30 from an estimated 1,684 individuals and families that participated in the event.  The fund raiser was held by the Boone Fareway and HyVee Stores from April 11-17.
