SOUTH HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Mennonite Friendship Communities (MFC) wants to help hunters. In turn, hunters can help the retirement community.

A gun raffle will help MFC get new flooring in the nursing home. Ten brand new guns will be up for raffle. They include a Beretta Outlander, Charles Daly 010, Ruger M77 Hawkeye with scope, Ruger PC-9, Ruger American with scope, Springfield Army Range Officer Elite, Ruger SP101, Sigsauer P365 and a CZ75B Matte.

“This idea for fundraising began with some church members who are excited about hunting, so we thought it would be a good way to generate some interest in our flooring project,” Lowell J. Peachey, president & CEO, said. “We hope a lot of people give it a try.”

Tickets are $25 each or 5 for $100 and they are on sale until noon on Friday, Dec. 20. The drawing will be at 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20, on Facebook Live. All winners must pass a background check.

The raffle is taking place to provide flooring for the nursing home, which is the oldest portion of MFC. The carpet has not been replaced for at least a decade. The estimated cost to replace the carpet is more than $70,000.

For more information about the raffle, call (620) 663-7175.
