Community members can help build a better future for Door County Habitat for Humanity partner families without ever picking up a hammer. A toolbox from build volunteers and a bookcase stocked with family-friendly titles donated by Altrusa of Door County are among the acts of the kindness greeting partner families on their home’s dedication day. In recent years, Door County Habitat for Humanity has made sure partner families’ other shelves are full by hosting a “Pack the Pantry” drive. ReStore manager Megan Dietz says she hopes the pantry can be full of groceries by the time the Purdy family moves into their new home potentially December 1st.
Volunteers are still needed for Door County Habitat for Humanity’s build days on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while non-perishable food items including quick and easy dinner ideas can be brought to the ReStore office.
