Niagara Area Habitat for Humanity will hold a drive-thru Chiavetta’s chicken dinner fundraiser from 3:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 20, at Niagara Falls First Assembly of God, 9750 Niagara Falls Blvd. The fundraiser will be held in partnership with the Niagara Regional Construction Alliance to help raise funds for Habitat for Humanity’s newest upcoming home, to be built this summer on 61st Street in Niagara Falls.
Dinner includes Chiavetta’s legendary chicken with potato salad and coleslaw as sides. Presale tickets can be purchased for $12 by calling 716-265-9010 or online at http://niagarahabitat.eventbrite.com/. Dinners can also be purchased May 20 for $14 while supplies last.
Customers can stay in their cars and event volunteers will load dinners into backseats or trunks.
NRCA President George Lodick said, “This has been a tough year for Habitat to fundraise due to COVID-19. They have had to cancel all of their fundraisers over the past year, so the Niagara Regional Construction Alliance is hoping to make this Chiavetta’s chicken dinner a huge success for them.”
Niagara Area Habitat Executive Director Gina Beam said, “We are trying to raise some much-needed funds for Niagara Area Habitat. Since it is a drive-thru, we are hoping to see a lot of supporters who have been hesitant to go out in public or at restaurants during the pandemic. This way, folks will be able to support Niagara Area Habitat while still getting a very tasty Chiavetta’s dinner and staying socially distant.”
A press release stated, “Niagara Area Habitat for Humanity makes homeownership possible for local families. Since 1993, it has built 29 homes in Niagara County, helping more than 100 families achieve their dream of homeownership. Families in Habitat’s homebuyer program are able to purchase a decent, safe affordable home. This is attainable for low-income families because Niagara Area Habitat subsidizes the cost of the house through grants, donations and volunteer labor. The homebuyer repays a low-interest, 30-year mortgage, which supports the ‘Fund for Humanity,’ a revolving account used to build additional homes.”
