Habitat for Humanity Fundraiser

taproomST. JOHNSBURY- A fundraiser is happening  at the Kindom Taproom in St. Johnsbury with 100% of the proceeds raised going toward Habitat for Humanity in the Northeast Kingdom.

The Taproom is offering the space free of charge this Saturday, to the local non profit to help them raise more money. This is not the first time that the taproom has allowed an organization to use the space for free. One of the eight couples that owns the taproom, Jamie Murphy says that the whole purpose of opening the Taproom in the first place was, "with the goal of being an asset to the community."

Reverand Jay Sprout who is apart of the NEK Habitat for Humanity Steering Committee is the one who has organized the event. When Sprout told Murphy about all the work that Habit for Humanity has done for the community; Murphy was blown away.

"Jay told me about some of the projects Habitat has completed in the community and the work they've done is very impressive.  Habitat has a long history of helping people in need and we are happy to help them any way we can." Says Murphy.

According to Nek Habitat for Humanity's website; the local non profit has, "worked on 33 homes in five years, serving over 76 homeowners. We have helped people build or repair affordable housing in 16 towns, including Brownington, Danville, Barton, Orleans, Lowell, St. Johnsbury, Lyndonville, East Haven, Barnet, Greensboro, and Hardwick".

The fundraiser offers the Taproom's signature flatbreads, desert, custom cocktails and music by Blue Road Crossing. The cost of admittance is donations which will all go toward NEK Habitat for Humanity, the doors open at 6 pm.
