Mailboxes Benefit Habitat for Humanity

An article on Wisconsin's website reports that several local schools and youth groups participated this week in Mailbox Garden which turned 12 mailboxes into works of art through a partnership between the Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity and the Fox River Mall.

According to the mall's website, "Schools were provided with a mailbox and $50 for supplies. Students then designed and decorated the mailboxes, making each a one-of-a-kind work of art. Shoppers, parents and Habitat supporters are invited to bid on the mailboxes or donate to help your school be the top fundraiser. All proceeds benefit Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity and the school that raises the most money will be awarded a $500 gift card, courtesy of Fox River Mall."
