The need is there, but local businesses and organizations are struggling to find those who need it the most. Sometimes it is the qualifications hindering organizations from finding a perfect match as it was for Door County Habitat for Humanity earlier this year. Potential partner families were found to be either too well off or in too dire of financial straits until the Purdy’s were named as recipients of a new home in May. It has been slim pickings in recent years for Jeff Blemke as Ultimate Air in Luxemburg looks for a deserving homeowner to receive a free furnace through Lennox’s Feel the Love program, formerly known as Heat U.P. Wisconsin. Blemke believes many people are just too proud to ask for help.
You can register yourself or someone you know for a free furnace through the Lennox Feel the Love program online through September 5. Door County Habitat for Humanity is always accepting applications for partner families.
