Welcome to Ten Thousand Villages Montreat!
Benefit for Asheville Area habitat for Humanity
Sunday October 2, 2016 (from 1-5pm), Ten Thousand Villages in Montreat will donate 15% of sales to Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s "Shiloh: Let’s Build" campaign.
The campaign aims to build 15 new houses by September 2017 and complete 30 Home Repair projects in the historically significant neighborhood of Shiloh in Asheville. This event is win-win-win, as shoppers will find items they love while supporting fair trade worldwide and affordable housing locally. A representative of Habitat's local team will be present to represent the organization and give more information about the project.
Women's Bean Project soup and gluten free cornbread will be served 1-4 PM
