The event is an effort to raise awareness of Habitat’s ReStores – both the Cornelius ReStore and the new Mooresville ReStore, which opened in November. ReStores sell new and gently used donated items to raise money for Habitat projects.
“The ReStore is our no. 1 fundraiser,” Resource Development Director Tammy Cox said. “The more people that shop there the more work we can do.”
Forty-five businesses and community members have reserved booths for the event, which includes a community yard sale, a farmers market and a community business expo, as well as a “Zumba-thon” from 9 to 11 a.m. The Zumba exercise is appropriate for people of all ages, and is sponsored by Kadi Fit.
The Community Fest is free and open to all community members. A $5 donation is suggested for participation in the Zumba-thon, and that money will benefit Our Towns Habitat for Humanity.
