Brooks Bucks return to benefit Habitat

  Email   Print

For the 13th consecutive year, Demos' Restaurant is serving it up for Wilson Habitat for Humanity. Each $5 donation to Wilson Habitat for Humanity buys one Brooks Buck and entitles the bearer to apply $7.50 toward one meal - lunch or dinner - at Demos' Restaurant in Lebanon.

"This partnership has been a longstanding tradition and benefits the work of Habitat each year," Wilson Habitat Director Tory Tredway said. "We are deeply grateful to Peter Demos and all the employees at the Lebanon restaurant. We appreciate everyone who participated last year and want to invite the community to join us again this year."

The popular Brooks Bucks are named for the late Brooks Franklin, humanitarian and 30-year veteran writer for the Lebanon Democrat. A nationally recognized journalist, Franklin won numerous awards for reporting and editorial writing. The issue of poverty and homelessness in Lebanon led to the Brooks Bucks fundraiser, which benefits one of Franklin's most loved causes, Habitat for Humanity.

Brooks Bucks are available for purchase throughout the remainder of March and are redeemable in April. They are sold through all branches of Wilson Bank & Trust in Wilson County, The Lebanon Democrat/Mt. Juliet News, the Habitat for Humanity office at 606 East Main Street in Lebanon, Habitat board members and the Habitat ReStore.

All sales benefit the work of Wilson Habitat for Humanity.
