Habitat For Humanity Donation

A cargo van was recently donated by Georgetown Cleaners to
the Habitat for Humanity Restore, located at 65 West Scott Street.  “This is a great donation to the store,” says
Restore manager Keith Lee.

The Restore depends on donations from the public,
particularly from businesses and individuals in the Fond du Lac area.  Paul Osterholm, Habitat’s Executive Director
notes that the Restore is of benefit not only to the donor, but also provides a
community outlet to recycle used household items and building supplies.   No other store in the area can offer used
appliances, windows, doors, lighting fixtures and furniture all in one place
and at incredibly low prices. 

Osterholm continues, “This donation, given by Jim from
Georgetown, will help a lot of people in building a caring community.   We are blessed for the continuous support
given to Habitat by Georgetown Cleaners and the rest of the Fond du Lac
community.  Partnering together we can
make a difference, enrich lives and build a better community.”

Habitat for Humanity of Fond du Lac County has constructed 25
homes.   We are in the planning stages of
our 26th home to be located at 596 South Main Street, with
construction beginning in 2015.  Homes
have been built in Fond du Lac, North Fond du Lac, and Ripon.  Habitat for Humanity offers a hand up, not a
hand out, by selling homes to low-income families through no-profit,
no-interest loans.  Since 1996, Habitat
has given 109 family members places to call home.
