July 30, 2007
Kettler, one of greater Washington, DC’s largest diversified real estate companies, announced today its plan to donate brand new Canac cabinets to the Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia ReStore. Kettler’s donation is the largest single contribution that the Habitat ReStore has ever received.
The pantries and wall cabinets, valued at $90,000, will be resold at the Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia ReStore with the proceeds used to build homes for low income families in Northern Virginia..
“We feel privileged to be able to aid Habitat for Humanity,” said Kettler’s president, Richard Hausler. “Our greatest satisfaction comes from improving the communities of which we are a part. This donation to Habitat will help better the Washington, D.C. area.”
Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia, through its volunteers and staff has built homes for 51 families in our community and, is working towards a goal of building another 50 homes in Northern Virginia by 2010.
In addition to Habitat for Humanity’s homebuilding efforts, the organization operates the Habitat ReStore which is a building and supply resale business that sells new and used home improvement materials to the general public at reasonable prices.
“We have partnered with Kettler in the past and know their generous donation will help Habitat for Humanity to grow and help the community even more,” said Herb Campbell, manager of ReStore. “I want to thank them for caring about the community enough to help our cause.”
