Niagara Area Habitat for Humanity will hold its annual graham cracker house fundraiser at The Brickyard Pub & B.B.Q. 432 Center St., Lewiston. The event is held during the Lewiston Christmas Walk, from noon until 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 7 and 8. The cost of the decorating workshop is $5 per child, and everyone gets to take home a graham cracker house.

The Lewiston-Porter fourth- and fifth-grade multi-age class, with the help of Lewiston Kiwanis Club members, made basic graham cracker houses, which can be decorated during the Niagara Area Habitat for Humanity fundraiser. The Lew-Port Middle School Builders' Club is a joint sponsor and will provide helpers for younger participants. New Hope Baptist Church teens and other volunteers will chip in, too.

A two-story dollhouse will be raffled off Dec. 16. The house was constructed by Ron Kraft from the Lewiston Senior Center and decorated by area crafters. It will be displayed at The Brickyard during the Christmas Walk, and then at KeyBank (Center and South Fifth streets) from Dec. 9-16. Raffle tickets are $10 each. Proceeds will support Niagara Area Habitat for Humanity.      

Niagara Area Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer organization supported by individual donations, grants and fundraising events. The local affiliate is now working on its 23rd home in the western end of Niagara County.
