benefiting NEK Habitat for Humanity

Throughout the 14 years that Upper Valley Habitat for Humanity has been operating a chapter here in the Northeast Kingdom, we have had the pleasure of meeting and working with folks who are not only wonderful volunteers and supporters, but also craftspeople in their own right. This NEK Habitat online catalog is not only a demonstration of their talents, but also evidence of the kind of caring we Vermonters have for our neighbors.  See our display in Caplan's windows on Railroad Street. For more information about individual items, call (802) 751-1212.
