LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Lexington Habitat for Humanity received an unexpected surprise in the mail, a $10,000 check from country music superstar Chris Stapleton 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.”
