Event at Journey North Church will focus on activities, fun, food and raising awareness

Habitat for Humanity in Aitkin is partnering with Thrivent Financial, churches and the community to fight hunger and raise funds for its work building affordable homes with local families.

The Nails N Nosh event on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 1-3 p.m. has a “build” theme with fun activities for all ages. Stations will be set up where  participants can build some infrastructure needed by Ruby’s Pantry while learning to use tools.

Others will have the opportunity to assemble “birthday bags” for distribution by the Aitkin Food Shelf. These bags will contain cake mix, decorations and all the things needed for a child’s birthday party.

Non-perishable items will be collected for the food shelf at First Lutheran Church, Aitkin, and participants will be able to sign a timber that will go into the 2020 Habitat house to be built in Aitkin. Free T-Shirts will be given to those who attend the event.
