Habitat offering home tours

To drum up interest, and more importantly, money for its on-going project, the Moffat County Habitat for Humanity organization will offer free tours of the first project home at 745 Yampa Ave.

"It's so people can see what we've done so far inside," Habitat for Humanity President Marilyn Bouldin said.

The holiday tour is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 16. The tour is free, though donations are welcome. Proceeds from the tour will go toward purchasing sheetrock and floorboards for the home.

Guests will also be able to meet the family earmarked to receive the home. The Burkett family of Craig will be on-hand at the tour, Bouldin said.

Guests will also be allowed to sign a piece of sheetrock, Bouldin said, as a tribute to the community's dedication to the project.

"Then their names will be forever inside the house," she said.

The holiday tour isn't the only avenue Habitat is pursuing to raise money for the project home. The group is also offering gift cards this holiday season.

For a minimum of $10, residents may donate to Habitat in the name of friends or family. All gifts are tax deductible.

Bouldin said the gift cards are an out-of-the-box idea for those seeking to given an unusual gift this holiday season.

"If you're like a lot of people and don't know what to get somebody, this is an easy way to give them and us a gift at the same time," she said.

Habitat for Humanity will host a volunteer workday at the project home from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
