Leaders from Larson Manufacturing, Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity, and Habitat for Humanity International announced on September 5th that Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity has won the “Home – Let’s Create One Together” Sweepstakes.
The cost of a Habitat home will be donated to the organization, which is in its 33rd year of fulfilling a Christian purpose of building homes, communities, and hope in Brown County.
The “Home – Let’s Create One Together” sweepstakes is a two-part contest. The individual winner received a $1,000 home makeover and selected a Habitat for Humanity affiliate to win a home build. This year’s winner, Kim Schroeder of Warrens, Wisconsin, selected Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity.
“Giving back to our communities is a key part of the LARSON culture, and we have supported Habitat for Humanity for many years. This gift will help advance Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build homes, communities, and hope,” said Jeff Rief, CEO of Larson Manufacturing.
Larson Manufacturing has been a Habitat for Humanity partner for decades, donating countless doors, dollars and volunteer hours, in addition to hosting Habitat for Humanity Care-A-Vanners.
On September 5th, Larson Manufacturing, Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity, and Habitat for Humanity International shared the great news in front of a crowd at Bart Starr Plaza. The announcement also fell on National Cheese Pizza Day, so the event featured free pizza and refreshments to celebrate the news.
“This announcement will impact our organization and Habitat’s reach in the community. We are excited to share this news about this incredible opportunity,” says Cora Haltaufderheid, Executive Director of Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity.
