MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MD (July 14, 2010)– This year Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, Maryland (HFH-MC) has enjoyed partnering with local restaurants in the Community Nights Out Campaign. The campaign strengthens the community by supporting local businesses that in turn donate a percentage of their proceeds from a specific day to HFH-MC to help build simple, decent, affordable housing in our community. Beginning Monday, July 26 through Friday, July 30, Habitat Restaurant Week will celebrate an entire week of restaurant nights at participating area locations. HFH-MC’s first Restaurant Week aims to involve local establishments in our attempt to raise awareness about affordable housing in Montgomery County and raise funds for the building of those affordable homes. The program not only benefits Habitat, but it also promotes local restaurants, bringing new patrons to their establishments.
Potomac Pizza, a monthly Community Night supporter, shares their Habitat experience. “Habitat not only takes the time to build homes, but builds long lasting relationships with the community. Potomac Pizza enjoys being given the unique opportunity to work so closely with an outstanding program!” Please join Habitat at one or all of the restaurants to support a great cause while enjoying great food and the company of friends and family during the week of July 26-30. In order for a percentage of your meal purchase to help support affordable housing, you must bring in the specified ticket for each restaurant. Ticket books are available on the Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County website at www.habitat-mc.org. See below for specific locations, dates and times.
