“Bread, Salt & Wine” – It’s a Wonderful Housewarming

Habitat for Humanity of Seneca County announced today that “The Bailey Kids” presented housewarming gifts to the owner of a house built together by the family and Habitat for Humanity at 25 Grove Street in Waterloo.

In the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” George Bailey and his wife bring a housewarming gift to the Martini family which consists of a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, and a box of salt. While the “Bailey Kids” are in town to celebrate It’s a Wonderful Life Weekend here in Seneca Falls, or commonly referred to as Bedford Falls this time of year, they are keeping their parents tradition. Bread so the house may never know hunger, salt so life may always have flavor, and wine so joy and prosperity may reign forever.

“Kamie and the Habitat team have worked so hard on this build, said Menzo Case, Habitat for Humanity of Seneca County Board President. We are thrilled to partner with the It’s a Wonderful Life Committee to make this day special for Kamie and her two boys and thankful for the Bailey Kids participation.”

Habitat is looking for volunteers to help with painting and cleaning that needs to be done to complete this home before Christmas. If you would like to help give the greatest gift of all this holiday season, a safe and reliable home, call 315.568.1190 or email info@habitatseneca.org.
