Letter to the editor

To the Editor,

People in our community (and all over the world) partner with Habitat for Humanity to build a place they can call home. These Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With the help of our community, they achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

Saturday, April 16, hundreds of runners, walkers and volunteers came out to support Habitat homebuilding in the Tri-County at the sixth annual Habitat HAMMER Half Marathon & 5K Run/Walk. Thank you to them and the sponsors and friends who made it possible:

Junior Collins HVAC, Prism Medical Products, Builders Mutual Insurance, Burchette & Burchette Hardwood, Elkin Funeral Service, Farm Bureau Greg Sidden, G&B Energy, Jonathan R. Snyder, M.D., PVH, 222 Public House, Angry Troll Brewing, BB&T, Carl Rose & Sons Asphalt Paving, Chad Sowers Jewelers, Creative EDC, Edward Jones – Frank Beals, Elkin Pediatric & Adult Medicine, Frontier Natural Gas, LifeStore Insurance, Mazzini’s Family Italian Restaurant, Northwestern Mutual -Jay Morphis, Piedmont Triad Anesthesia, Underdown Ball, Woodforest National Bank, Yadtel, Elkin Police Department, Elkin Parks and Recreation, Elkin Rescue Squad, Keith Hall Photography, Abstract Church, Girl Scouts under the leadership of Beth Shaw , Elkin Valley Baptist Church, Elkin High School Art Club and Girls Against Poverty.

With funds from the HAMMER, we’re completing our newest Habitat house in Jonesville, soon to be the home of Travis and Angela and their family. Thank you to all who made the race such fun and such a success. Working together, we’re making a real and lasting difference.
