Habitat for Humanity Fundraising Barbecue
Help Sara Stroud and Lexie Palacio raise money for their Habitat for Humanity trip to Trinidad and Tobago! Carnitas’ Snack Shack North Park is hosting a fundraising barbecue benefiting TEAM PALACIO – HABITAT FOR HUMANITY BUILD on Sunday, June 4.
From 12pm-4pm, Sara, Lexie, and Chef Hanis will be in the Pig Pen serving up BBQ Pork Sandwiches with Pork Belly Mac N Cheese for only $7. A portion of all profits will go directly to supporting Team Palacio’s Habitat for Humanity Build.
Within the Caribbean islands state of Trinidad and Tobago, substantial pockets of poverty exist. Home ownership for those in this economic state can be very hard or impossible to achieve. The rising cost of houses and land, unwillingness of financial institutions to lend, unstable employment, and lack of certificates of inherited land are all major obstacles for many families to get a decent place to live. Those who have managed to secure land often live in self-made, dilapidated homes of old wood and/or cinder blocks. Without the means to repair, improve or expand, families can find themselves in cramped, unsanitary, decaying structures that they call home.
