Gingerbread house creations to aid Habitat project

Habitat for Humanity strives to make communities aware of the need for adequate housing. This year, the Fairfield County Habitat for Humanity built its 200th home. Local youth have raised the funds toward four of these homes through the Youth United program, which has a chapter in Wilton.

Wilton students assembled gingerbread homes this past week for display at the Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut, aka Wilton YMCA, as a reminder of the need for local housing. They will sell the homes as centerpieces on Saturday, Dec. 19, outside Stop & Shop, which also donated the icing and graham crackers for the houses.
Any contributions will go toward the Habitat for Humanity current project at 84 Maple Street in Bridgeport and help toward meeting the State Farm Insurance Challenge to match funds up to $10,000.
