Albany - The Habitat for Humanity Heritage Chapter is raising money to provide affordable housing for those in need.

The group held a barbecue dinner fundraiser Saturday in order to raise money to build two new habitat homes in Albany. Meat Slangers prepared the food, and volunteers served it at Trinity Lutheran Church.

Chapter President Lynn McCracken says the cost is a small sacrifice for a good cause. "We've been doing every year now for ten years," says McCracken. "The money we raise is going to help some person who can't afford their own house, be in a new house."

The two new homes will be built later this year.
