Junction City Habitat for Humanity Event

junction city habitat eventJUNCTION CITY, Ore. — Dozens gathered for a community event in Junction City Saturday to help raise money for the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, as they prepare to build their 18th home.

The owner of a new store in town has been a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity for the last five years. When he heard the Junction City, Harrisburg and Monroe chapter still needed help with their current “Home at Last” project, he decided to use his store’s grand opening event to help raise funds.

Dozens of people showed up to GunRunners Arms ribbon cutting to support the store and Habitat for Humanity.

Cindy Decker, the Executive Director of the Junction City, Harrisburg and Monroe Habitat for Humanity, said the owner “asked if Habitat could be part of it, because he knows it’s a good cause,” and he worked the whole thing out.  “We just kind of showed up and were able to benefit from this,” said Decker.

Habitat plans to start building the new Junction City home in April.
