Brooks Bucks is Back!

Starting in March and for the 15th consecutive year, Demos’ Restaurant is serving it up for Wilson Habitat for Humanity. Each $5 donation to Wilson Habitat for Humanity buys one Brooks Buck and entitles the bearer to apply $7.50 toward one meal — lunch or dinner — at Demos’ Restaurant in Lebanon. Brooks Bucks are available for purchase through the month of March and are redeemable in April, according to Tory Tredway, director of Wilson Habitat.


“This partnership has been a longstanding tradition and benefits the work of Habitat each year. We are deeply grateful to Peter Demos and all the employees at the Lebanon restaurant.  We appreciate everyone who participated last year and want to invite the community to join us again this year,” said Tredway.


The popular Brooks Bucks are named after the late Brooks Franklin, humanitarian and 30-year veteran writer for the Lebanon Democrat.  Franklin was a nationally recognized newsman, winning numerous national and state awards for reporting and editorial writing.  The issue of poverty and homelessness in Lebanon led to the Brooks Bucks fundraiser, which benefits one of Franklin’s most loved causes, Habitat for Humanity. 


The familiar green bucks are sold through:

All branches of Wilson Bank & Trust in Wilson County
The Lebanon Democrat / Mt. Juliet News
Habitat for Humanity office at 606 E. Main Street, Lebanon
Habitat Board Members
Habitat ReStore

100% of sales benefit the work of Wilson Habitat for Humanity.

History of Wilson Habitat

The work of Wilson Habitat began in 1992 with their first home built in 1994, which is still occupied by the original homeowner who paid off her mortgage with the help from an anonymous donor in 2014. Wilson Habitat has now built 73 homes and renovated three, serving 76 families. In May 2012, Wilson Habitat conducted its first Blitz Build, completing a house in five consecutive days with the support of 30 businesses from local construction industries.
