Chris and Morgane Stapleton Make Surprise $10,000 Donation to Lexington Habitat for Humanity
"Every dollar makes a difference and we know this gift will make a big impact on Lexington families."
It's not every day that Lexington Habitat for Humanity discovers a $10,000 check when they're going through the mail. But on a recent day, that happened for the Kentucky non-profit that builds and remodels homes to give people a safe place to live.
The $10,000 donation came courtesy of country music star Chris Stapleton, a Kentucky native who grew up in Staffordsville, and his wife Morgane Stapleton. Of the generous gift, Rachel Childress, Lexington Habitat for Humanity CEO, said in a press release, per WKYT News, “We were thrilled when the check came in the mail. It was completely unexpected." Childress added, "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.”
