The Briarcliff High School Habitat for Humanity Club will be hosting a gingerbread house-making fundraiser in the K-2 cafeteria at Todd Elementary School on Thursday, Dec. from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. to raise money for the club’s continuing efforts to better the situations of those who have lost homes in Hurricane Sandy and other tragic events.

Entry to the event will cost $15 per child, which will allow young children to build their own gingerbread houses and eat or take them home for the holidays.

Refreshments will be served and donations are welcome, and the club will be selling Habitat for Humanity t-shirts as well. Club presidents, advisors and other club members will be supervising, but parents are welcome to stay and enjoy the experience with their children.

Parents should RSVP to lindsayharris126@gmail.com with the number of children, their names and ages, and if they have food allergies. The BHS Habitat for Humanity Club “hopes to see you there to raise money for a great cause in the spirit of the holidays!”

The Gingerbread House Build will be the icing on the cake – or rather house – for BHS’s 2013, as it continues to volunteer its time in local communities helping to build and renovate living spaces for those in need. This fall the club spackled and painted an apartment in an impoverished area of Peekskill.
