Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity and the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Green Bay are working together Saturday, February 27 to salvage building supplies from a City owned property at 701 12th Avenue. The building on the property has seen fire damage and a failed attempt at rehab. The structure is slated for demolition early next week. Many of the materials used for that rehab, including doors, windows, half log siding and cultured stone, were of high quality and still have value. A group of volunteers will be on site Saturday from 8am to 4:30pm to remove the valuable materials. All of the salvaged materials will then be delivered to the ReStore for resale and repurpose.
Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity works to transform lives and promote positive change for the families who qualify. Families are provided an interest free mortgage and must show a demonstrated ability to pay and need for housing. Sweaty equity hours are required by each homeowner as well. To date habitat has built 89 homes in the area with nine more scheduled for 2016.
Green Bay Habitat and City staff will be available on-site at 12th street for interviews.
