Our tree seedlings are here! A month early! In the middle of a pandemic! And during Easter week!
Imagine our surprise when the nursery in Wisconsin delivered 5 packages to our door on Tuesday. So we are doing the best we can with almost everyone being laid off and rolling with our sale.
We will be selling seedlings, following all COVID 19 protocols, from our ReStore tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday, April 9th and 10th from 10 am until 3 pm. And NO the store is not open.
This is a great time to add an agriculture or biology chapter to your kid's school projects!
We want to thank Clare, Claire, Kathy and Anne. They will be wearing masks and gloves and following social distancing guidelines while helping out with this fundraiser.
Note: on the form below, the dates are wrong AND we are already sold out of the hibiscus trees.
You may also buy individual trees for $3.00 each. Your bundles of 10 can be a mix and match of the different trees.
|Species||Size of seedling||Trees per bundle||Price|
|Lilac - Common||12”-18”||10||$25.00
|Oak - Red||12”-18”||10||$25.00
|Colorado Blue Spruce ||6”–12”||10||$25.00
|White Pine||6”– 12”||10||$25.00|
You all know what's going on. Food shortages, sheltering in place and businesses temporarily shuttering their doors.
We at Lakes Area Habitat are no different. We are sorry to say that we will be temporarily shutting down our ReStore and closing our office to visitors. We will be suspending any contact with the general public including pick-ups, drop-offs and salvages until at least April 1st.
If you have a drop-off, pick-up or salvage, please call the office at 218.828.8517 for updates on what decisions are being made. Watch our Facebook page (Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity and ReStore) for updates as the situation can change.
Please pray for our mission and that a treatment for this virus to be found. Pray for our employees as we face lay-offs since our main income stream (the ReStore) is now gone. But also pray for wisdom for the public to use caution and take the advice of the experts and shelter in place.
Thank you and God Bless.
Lakes Area Habitat For Humanity
In the past 29 years, we have completed 115 homes in Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard and Wadena Counties and the City of Staples. Active in 70 countries, Habitat for Humanity International has built over 800,000 homes, providing more than 22 million people in 3,000 communities with safe, decent and affordable shelter.
Begun in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller, Habitat for Humanity’s vision was to eliminate poverty housing from the face of the earth.
In FY2018, 1.4 million volunteers helped build, advocate and raise awareness about the global need for shelter. 1,047 families in the US partnered with Habitat’s Veteran Build to construct new homes or to improve or repair their existing homes. The total ReStore square footage grew to 12.2 million. That’s 280 acres of retail operations supporting Habitat locally in 899 locations.
