WACKER POLYSILICON North America donated $10,000 in support of the Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland ReStores. The gift will be used to purchase a truck that will be used to collect donations from the community that are sold to fulfill Habitat’s mission in Bradley County.
“Habitat for Humanity works in many ways to support families in this community who are in need of a place to call home,” said Mary Beth Hudson, vice president and site manager of WACKER POLYSILICON North America. “We are proud to support the great work they do in Bradley County, and look forward to future opportunities to grow our partnership.”
The ReStore accepts gently-used donations in sellable condition and then sells them at up to 80% below retail value. The profits from the ReStores allow Habitat to fulfill the mission of building homes in Bradley County.
“We are so grateful and excited to partner with WACKER POLYSILICON,” said Chip Willis, Habitat for Humanity
executive director. “Our current donation pick-up truck has over 225,000 miles on it, so this gift to purchase a truck was very much needed. Without a reliable truck, we cannot keep enough inventory in our stores to support the Habitat of Cleveland mission.”
