Donations Exceed Loss At Everett Habitat For Humanity House

November 30, 2016


Good news into this afternoon as Habitat for Humanity reports donations have exceeded the losses after a burglary last week at their latest project in Everett. Here’s an update received earlier today…


Sandy, Ray and family will get the keys to their new home in mid-December.

Following the theft of $3,000-worth of tools at Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County’s build site last week, donors raised $3,610 to replace the tools. Habitat Snohomish also received a number of used tool donations from people who wanted to help.

“We are blessed to live in a community where people look out for each other,” Executive Director Guinn Rogers said. “These donors picked us up when we were down and they reminded us that others share our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.”

Habitat Snohomish received enough donations to replace all that was stolen and to purchase new tools for the upcoming 30-home build project, Twin Creeks Village.

The theft was discovered last Wednesday, but it is unclear when the theft occurred. Some of the items stolen include a compressor, miter saw, more than a dozen corded and cordless saws and other tools.

The site is located at 2010 23rd Street in Everett and a family of five will move into their home in December. The home dedication is scheduled for December 17 at 10 a.m. and is open to the public.
