support of the Library at Cedar Creek Lake.

Habitat for Humanity gets
Special to The Monitor
PAYNE SPRINGS–The Pinnacle Women’s Club is pleased to present the Cedar
Creek chapter of Habitat for Humanity a check in the amount of $1,000.
Habitat for Humanity is instrumental in providing low-cost housing to
qualified individuals giving them the opportunity to fulfill the great
American dream of owning their own home.
Families who qualify for Habitat Homes pay monthly mortgages, insurance
and tax payments, but the loan is interest free.
They are also required to donate 300 hours of “sweat equity” in the
construction of their home and other projects, making this process “a
hand up, not a hand out.”
“The lake area community deserves a round of applause for making the
Pinnacle Women annual garage sale a huge success, which allows us to
support worthwhile organizations such as Habitat with the funds
generated from this event,” PWC philanthropy chairman Jean Alexander
