ASSOCIATED BANK AND THE ORDEAN FOUNDATION PARTNER TO PURCHASE VEHICLES FOR WESTERN LAKE SUPERIOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
TWIN PORTS - DECEMBER 13, 2019 - Associated Bank and the Ordean Foundation each provided a $20,000 grant (a combined total of $40,000) to Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity for the purchase of two vehicles.
One truck purchase is to be used by the Construction Manager enabling him to haul equipment and materials to our on-site builds. The Construction Manager is responsible for supporting and managing all our new home construction with our partner families, as well as, rebuilding and repair work through our Aging In Place Program. This vehicle will allow him to haul materials from our warehouse and various other facilities directly to our build sites. The second vehicle will be used by the Executive Director and staff for work related transportation.
These vehicles will help increase the efficiency and productivity of the overall operation of the affiliate, as the staff travels throughout the four county geographic region which the affiliate serves (Douglas County, WI. Duluth, MN., Southern MN Counties of Lake and Carlton.)
Western Lake Superior Habitat For Humanity is so very grateful for the Associated Bank and Ordean Foundation partnerships being developed in the communities we serve, as they help us work to create affordable and sustainable housing.
