St. Paul's literally raises the roof

October 2, 2007

Albany --  Volunteers with St. Paul's Episcopal Church and the Flint River Habitat for Humanity are setting up for Saturday's "Raise the Roof Church Wide Yard Sale" downtown.

The money raised from the yard sale will help pay for a Habitat House being built for church nursery worker Velma McClary.  

"Directly for the house, to build the house.  Because it takes, I believe, about 40 to 45 thousand dollars to build it.  So we are hoping to get it jump started with this sale," said Volunteer Angie Talley.

The church donated furniture, clothes, shoes, toys, tools, books, and other items for Saturday's Sale.     

It will be held from 8 to noon Saturday at 202 West Broad Avenue. That's the old Owens Sporting Goods store right across the street from the Federal Court house.
