item donations

With the help of local donations made by generous people including businesses, contractors and homeowners like you we are able to support our mission to build and maintain affordable housing for families in our community. Proceeds from every sale go to help build homes in Manitowoc County. Each donation you make helps provide a hand-up, not a hand-out to a local family in need of decent shelter.
