Habitat For Humanity Fundraiser In Garner Brings In $60,000

— Part of the mission for Habitat for Humanity is to build families, one house at a time.

That mission was the focus of a benefit at St. Andrews United Methodist Church on Saturday in Garner.

The "Together We Build" fundraiser featured a yard sale and an auction.

The organizers had hoped to raise $48,000.

But so far, the fundraiser has brought in $60,000, and organizers expect that number to increase.

The money will help build Habitat for Humanity houses in Garner.
