Shopping at local grocery stores helps our Habitat for Humanity

Dear Editor:
Lake Chelan Valley Habitat for Humanity is extremely pleased to report receipt amounts as of August 9, 2021 from Manson’s Red Apple and Chelan’s IGA stores 1% Donation Program. Manson’s grocery store receipts totaled $19,871; Chelan’s were $16,714. One percent of those totals go to Habitat to build homes with partner families.
 Chelan’s IGA owners Tony and Trish Race of Chelan, and Manson’s Red Apple Market owners Eric and Marietta “Pete” Jacobsen of Manson’s store donate 1% or more of each receipt to Lake Chelan Valley Habitat for Humanity.
 Karen Feek, a Habitat volunteer of many years, collects receipts from the store or receipt box located outside Habitat’s Thrift Store located at 518 E. Woodin Ave. in uptown Chelan. It takes many hours for her to total donated receipts in increments of $1,000. She then turns them back into each store.  The store owners then send our local Habitat a check for 1% (or more) of the total receipts.
 Since March of 2007, Habitat has been the recipient of the 1% program from these generous store owners. They have donated $8,530 from your grocery store receipts to help local working families buy a home. Thank you!
 Habitat and its Partner Families have built 19 homes so far.  Thank you for helping Habitat through such a simple act of thoughtfulness.
Note: I talked with Tony Race on August 19. He is glad the lumber prices are going down so Habitat’s money can go further in buying lumber for the homes.
