CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (CLARKSVILLENOW) – This year’s Best of Clarksville, held October 3 at Governors Square Mall, was a resounding success raising more than $166,000 for local nonprofit organizations.
One of those organizations receiving support was Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County. Best of Clarksville Chairman Justin Grant presented a check for $20,000 to Rob Selkow, Executive Director and Nicole June, Operations Manager with Habitat.
“The Best of Clarksville funds will create a community area within our ReStore for children’s art programs and youth mentoring projects that teach carpentry or other skills,” Selkow said. “And we also hope to engage the elderly to lead some activities in this space.”
Habitat for Humanity works to eliminate poverty housing from the Clarksville-Montgomery County area and to create decent, affordable shelter for all people.
The organization also operates the Habitat for Humanity ReStore which is a discount home improvement store that sells donated building materials and other items at reduced prices to the public. One-hundred percent of the ReStore profits go to support Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County.
