LEXINGTON (June 27, 2019) – The Amigos started out as three retired friends who volunteered together, but over the last 20 years this group has grown and become a staple at Lexington Habitat. They give their time and talents nearly every week to help us complete builds and special projects. Their dedication and contribution to our mission is nothing short of remarkable. Check out their spotlight on LEX18 here.

LEXINGTON (June 24, 2019) – Recently, Chris Stapleton continued his quiet support for the communities of Central Kentucky, including his hometown of Lexington, Ky. The staff at Lexington Habitat for Humanity were surprised to receive a $10,000 donation from the country music star and his wife, Morgane.

“We were thrilled when the check came in the mail. It was completely unexpected,” said Rachel Childress, Lexington Habitat CEO. “It is beautiful when people use their resources to help others. Every dollar makes a difference and we know this gift will make a big impact on Lexington families. We are so grateful.”

The donation will be used to help people in need of safe, affordable housing and support Lexington Habitat’s mission to build homes, communities and hope. The contribution came from Stapleton's charitable fund, Outlaw State of Kind, named after his hit song Outlaw State of Mind. The fund is administered by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and supports a variety of causes that are close to Stapleton’s heart.
