Potatoes on Sale to Help Build a Home

There is no better example of 'caring communities' than this

Potatoes on Sale to Help Build a Home


April 6, 2018 ~ There’s a pretty big effort going in Green Bay South to build a new home for Lorne and Wavey Noseworthy of Brighton. A fire rendered the couple’s house uninhabitable just days before last Christmas.

Now people are coming together in a pretty impressive way to raise a new little home for Lorne and Wavey. Labour/time donations, and money and materials donations are coming in.

To help the Green Bay South Caring Communities Committee build that new home for the Noseworthy family, Green Bay South area farmer Rodney Gray is donating the sales from 50 sacks of potatoes. He is selling a 50 lb bag for $20. Anyone interested in taking part in this initiative is asked to contact Joni Noseworthy (709 652 3667), Nikita Noseworthy (709 293 4164), or Shirley Young (709 650 0043). The potatoes will be ready April 27th or 28th. Delivery from Roberts Arm down to Brighton will be available if stated.

The Green Bay South Caring Communities Committee steps up when a family falls into a difficult situation through circumstances beyond their control. The new home for the Noseworthy family is the group’s eighth project.

The new home is going up at a brisk speed. The work started only a few weeks ago and the siding is already going on. You can follow the project’s progress on the GBS Caring Communities Facebook page.
