Maple Ridge Farms Presents Check To Habitat For Humanity of Wausau
Maple Ridge Farms (PPAI 114165, S8), based in Mosinee, Wisconsin, presented a check for $7,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Wausau. The donation was the result of the supplier’s “Give Back” program for 2020. In that program, Maple Ridge Farms donates a percentage of the profits from a specially selected line of gifts.
Presenting the check were Shana Gardner, one of the main architects of Maple Ridge Farms’ Give Back program; Jodie Schillinger, executive vice president; and Tom Riordan, the company’s president.
“Maple Ridge Farm’s generosity in donating $7,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Wausau’s home build program will help low-income families in our area living in substandard conditions to obtain safe and affordable shelter,” says Chris Frost, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Wausau. “It will have a lifechanging impact on our partner families and will help Habitat achieve its vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.”
Schillinger adds, “Affordable housing and employment are very intertwined. Affordable housing can significantly impact employment opportunities, and in turn has the potential to create sustainability for a family and one’s career path. We are thrilled to partner with Habitat for Humanity.”
Riordan acknowledged and thanked all of the distributors who worked to make the program a success. “We were able to increase our donation to Habitat for Humanity of Wausau by 40 percent this year because of the great success of the program,” he says.
