OGDEN -- While area residents and families are thinking of others this time of year, Joel Lee, president of Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties, is inviting them to play Santa by donating to his organization.
He stated in Habitat's December newsletter that the group's nonprofit, no-interest loans -- designed to provide a hand-up, not a hand-out -- really work.
According to the newsletter, $10 buys a box of nails, $25 buys paint, $50 buys a toilet, $75 buys a window, $100 buys a kitchen sink and $150 buys a front door. If someone gives $250, it buys shingles and $500 buys a furnace.
Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties is at 2261 Adams Ave. in Ogden.

Donate, meet Santa,
