ECHO Bear Cat recently donated more than 270 pairs of landscaping gloves to the local Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity in Moorhead, Minn.
Rob Rich, construction manager and Shelby Cochran, ReStore VISTA, accepted the gloves and quickly put them to use. LAHFA will supply the gloves for volunteer workers to use at future construction sites and will sell the gloves at a discounted retail price at its home-improvement thrift ReStore.
“We wanted to find an organization that would benefit the most from the glove donation,” said director of ECHO Bear Cat, Dale Winkelman. “We decided to reach out and donate to our local Habitat for Humanity, knowing they would get the most benefit and use out of the gloves.”
Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity serves the Cass and Clay counties of North Dakota and Minnesota. First established in 1991, LAHFH has built and rehabbed 40 homes and continues to strive to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness. LFHFA is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. To learn more about the organization, visit www.lakeagassizhabitat.org
