Habitat for Humanity’s Re-store was also there accepting furniture donations for those families.

Habitat for Humanity’s Assistant Manager, Colin Jonkel says this is another effort to spread the message of what Habitat for Humanity is doing within the community.

“We’re trying to get the word out, get more people to know what we’re about and what we’re doing. As much exposure as we can, and just have a good time with some good food and great music,” said Jonkel.
