Habitat for Humanity Updates
Lexington’s Habitat for Humanity has announced temporary changes in their operations: “Our work is about more than homes, it’s about community. That is why — first and foremost — we must help prioritize the health and safety of this community. We have been closely monitoring development with Covid-19 and reviewing recommendations on the local, state and federal level.” Both “ReStores: Temporarily Closed to the Public.” Lexington’s Habitat reminds supporters, “We are so grateful for your support, but one of the best ways to help us is to please not leave anything outside of our doors at this time. Sta will not be able to process any items. You can support us by holding your donations until we reopen or making a financial donation at www.lexhabitat.org/ways-to-give.”
Reforest the Bluegrass

- Distribution points for tree seedlings throughout the community – with information on which tree is which and where they should go
- An online method for reporting what tree you planted and where it went; extra Reforest love if you share a picture of your tree in its new home
- Another Go See Trees nature hunt
- Reforest story time – Facebook Live reading of books focused on trees and the many reasons they are awesome
Trees will not be available until mid to late April.
