SCARSDALE, N.Y. – They’re accustomed to wood and nails most days, but each December they reach for the icing and graham crackers.
Scarsdale High School’s Habitat for Humanity Club recently held it’s annual Gingerbread House sale to benefit Westchester County’s chapter of the global nonprofit.
“This is a highlight of our holidays. Ms. (Heather) Waters and the kids do a great job every year,” said Jim Killoran, CEO of Habitat of Westchester in a statement. “… It especially helps up as we help recent fire victims in New Rochelle. …”
Habitat for Humanity works with veterans, seniors and other New Yorkers, said Killoran, adding that the organization hopes events like the Gingerbread House sale will serve as a reminder that the need for affordable housing has never been greater.
