Habitat For Humanity Of Catoosa County Seeks Lunch Donations

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Catoosa County Habitat for Humanity is seeking future lunch donations for volunteer groups. “Our volunteers work hard on projects and we like to thank them by providing lunch for them.” said Penny Mahon, Catoosa Habitat’s Executive Director. “Several restaurants have participated in providing lunch for our volunteers and we are looking for some new partners.”

Restaurants that have participated in providing lunch for Catoosa Habitat volunteers include Krystal, Domino’s, and Chick-fil-A.

  During a recent project Jack’s donated food to volunteers who were helping to lay down new flooring in a home.  Corey Sanders, Jack’s general manager, stated that he was happy to help feed Catoosa Habitat volunteers. “We want to help out in the community and when Habitat called asking for a donation of food we were more than happy to provide that,” said Mr. Sanders.

“There has been great support from local restaurants to our cause but we wanted to put the word out that we are seeking new partners,” said Ms. Mahon.  Even church and civic groups are welcomed to make lunches for volunteers.  “Most of our projects take place on Saturdays so it would be a great opportunity for a church or civic group to get together to make sack lunches early in the morning and bring them out to volunteers on the worksite.”

If your restaurant or organization would like to provide lunch for Catoosa Habitat volunteers, contact the office at 706-861-5858 or email at Habitat1@catt.com.

Reflections On Billy Graham

Sandra and I are saddened this morning after learning of the death of Billy Graham. We rejoice today, because Mr. Graham once said "It will be reported that Billy Graham has died, but that won't be the truth. He said the truth is that he had only moved to a new location".  I remember when we named 15th Street as Billy Graham Avenue, his daughter Gigi came for the dedication ... (click for more)
