For the third year in a row, EACOM Timber is lending a helping hand to Habitat for Humanity Canada.
At its Nairn Centre sawmill, west of Sudbury, the Montreal-based timber giant announced on Aug.8 of its donation of more than $86,000 worth of lumber to support home construction projects in Ottawa, Grey Bruce, Thunder Bay and Montreal.
The donation helps the national charity with providing decent and affordable housing for 19 families.
"We believe that strong communities start with safe and decent homes for families, which is why Habitat for Humanity Canada's mission aligns with our values," said EACOM Timber president-CEO Kevin Edgson in a statement.
"This partnership is a natural fit that furthers EACOM's commitment to supporting thriving communities."
"Grown and processed with pride in our northern regions, our certified wood products will provide a solid structure to 19 families as they embark in this new chapter of their lives."
