MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – A local affiliate held one of its largest fundraisers at the Crab Shack Caribba in Morgantown.
Mon Valley Habitat for Humanity “Raise the Roof” fundraiser is where volunteers stated is a way to get people from the community out to learn about the affiliate. The organization had a online silent auction, a ring toss, and more.
Volunteer Michael Biafore said this fundraiser is not only a way to raise money but to also raise awareness.
“One thing that COVID has done to our affiliate is that our international organization prohibits us from having volunteers onsite” said Biafore. Were primarily volunteer driven. It has presented a lot of challenges on our construction. A lot of the struggles that were going through are not being able to have volunteers on site. It’s really impacted our ability to get our families into their homes.”
People were able to bid on custom design cakes, gift baskets, winter weekend getaways and more.
A percentage of dine-in and take-out sales at the Crab Shack Caribba went towards the affiliate as well as the silent auction that was held online.
