Youth United, Wilton Chapter–a youth-led volunteer program affiliated with Habitat for Humanity–will be selling homemade pieces through Open House Gift Shop beginning this week, with all proceeds going to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County. All were made during the group’s activity day Sunday, Nov. 9 (picture above).
The items being sold include: cork coasters $3 each; cork trivets $7 each; and wooden cheese boards $10 each.
The goal of Youth United is to foster teamwork among diverse groups of youth; to educate youth about Habitat’s mission through service, advocacy, fundraising and building; to encourage collaboration among Youth United members, the affiliate and local community; and to develop youth leadership through their actions and initiatives.
The Wilton Youth United chapter is made up of kids ages 8-years-old and up, with monthly activities planned throughout the year. For more information, contact Margie Holcombe, chapter organizer, via email.
