Friday morning, Habitat construction staff arrived to bad news at the Glisan Gardens site at NE 165th and Glisan Street.  Both tool trailers were broken into and thousands of dollars in equipment and tools were stolen.

Habitat relies on these materials to build homes for hardworking, local families, and we are requesting your help to raise the funds to replace them so we can get back to work.

Thank you for your consideration.
