Even with the weather cooling off, the volunteers with Habitat for Humanity are still busy working on their latest home build on Ominca St. East.

Habitat Moose Jaw is holding some Christmas fundraisers to help cover the costs of the project including a 50/50 raffle.

Chapter lead Donna Watts says there could potentially be a big jackpot for the lucky winner.

"We thought it would be a really nice opportunity for people to have the chance to win some money right before Christmas. We can see $100,000 in tickets so it could be as much as a $50,000 prize."

The organization is also calling on all local students Grades 4 to 6 to enter Habitat for Humanity Canada's Christmas writing contest, "The Meaning of Home." All you have to do is submit a story, essay, or poem describing what home means to you and your family.

"For every submission that we get in the Moose Jaw area, $10 will be donated towards our build. The winner of the contest from each grade will get to direct a $30,000 grant towards a local Habitat build. Then there are also nine runners-up who will get to direct $10,000 each towards a local build."

You can submit your entries here. If you're interested in supporting the 50/50 raffle, you can get your tickets for $10 a piece by clicking here.

All the money raised stays right here in Moose Jaw.
