Habitat for Humanity Slates Valentine's Fundraiser
Habitat for Humanity is helping all the men in the Sandhills region this Valentine's Day by taking the guess work out of gift shopping.
The home-building organization is selling chocolate kiss roses to raise money for its fall 2009 Women Build. Bouquets of roses made of chocolate kisses are available now for pre-order and a limited quantity will be sold in the Moore Store on Valentine's Day. Bouquets will be sold by the dozen and half dozen, for $10 and $5 respectively.
The roses are made of two chocolate kiss candies wrapped in red cellophane and attached to a stem and leaves.
"Rather than sell chocolates or real flowers, the chocolate kiss roses are a perfect combination and a great way to support your local Habitat for Humanity," says a spokesman.
All proceeds go to the 2009 Women Build, a house built entirely by women in the community. Orders can be taken by phone with a credit card by calling (910) 295-1934. Orders paid by cash or check can be made by stopping into the Habitat office at 2268 N.C. 5 in Aberdeen. Pre-orders can be taken until Jan. 31. To order or for more information, call Amanda at 910-295-1934.
