Maple Ridge Farms Donates $7,000 to Local Habitat for Humanity
Maple Ridge Farms, Mosinee, Wis., presented a check for $7,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Wausau. The donation was the result of the company’s “Give Back” program for 2020. As part of 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 the program; Jodie Schillinger, executive vice president of Maple Ridge Farms; and Tom Riordan, president of Maple Ridge Farms.
Chris Frost, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Wausau, explained how thrilled they were to receive the contribution.
“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,” Frost said. “It will have a life-changing impact on our partner families and will help Habitat achieve its vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.”
Jodie Schillinger stated, “Affordable housing and employment are very intertwined,” Schillinger said. “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.”
“We were able to increase our donation to Habitat for Humanity of Wausau by 40% this year because of the great success of the program,” Riordan added.
Riordan also acknowledged and thanked all of the distributors who worked to make the program a success.
