Miniature Habitat House On Display At Enzo's Market

Monday, December 9, 2013

A holiday display was unveiled on Saturday as part of the MainX24 festivities...a miniature Habitat house.

The six foot by six foot playhouse was designed and custom built by Habitat for Humanity’s Construction Department to generate awareness surrounding Habitat’s Help Build It Campaign. Proceeds raised during this month-long campaign will be used to build an energy efficient home for a family of five on 14th Street in Southside Chattanooga.

“At Habitat for Humanity, we believe every little bit of goodness can help change the world and for this reason we have partnered with our Southside neighbors at Enzo’s Market to launch the Help Build It Campaign,” said David Butler, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga. “We are tremendously grateful for their partnership and dedication in helping us expand the opportunity of homeownership to a deserving family.”

Between now and Jan. 5, community residents can stop by Enzo's Market to make a donation to the Help Build It Campaign. Donations can be placed in the mail slot of the illuminated holiday house located in the store's lobby or they can be mailed to Habitat for Humanity at 1201 E. Main St., Chattanooga 37408. 

“We hope that the community will stop by the Habitat display and consider using it as a backdrop for their holiday photos,” said Dominique Brandt, Habitat for Humanity’s director of Volunteers and Special Events. “While visiting the holiday display, I hope visitors will consider sharing some goodness with Habitat by participating in the Help Build It Campaign so that next year a very deserving family can be in their own home for the holidays. We hope area residents will consider supporting and shopping at Enzo's Market as they are a wonderful community partner."
