Habitat for Humanity Wood Buffalo hosted our first building supply drive this past weekend, and what a success! Over $2700 in cash and gift cards and over $10,000 in product donations were received. We are still valuating the product donations and expect this number to rise.
A big shout out to ATCO Gas for supplying the trucks for collecting donated materials and to our location sponsors, Wood Buffalo Building Supplies (Saturday) and RONA (Saturday & Sunday). Also, a huge thank you to the volunteers that braved the snow and cool temperatures to collect donation materials, load and unload it and sort/inventory it at our warehouse space.
Items collected will be used towards our Railway Avenue build that is on the go and towards repair projects for our Wildfire Recovery Program. Thank you to everyone that donated to us over the weekend or offered future volunteer services!
