Tamarack North donates $5,000 to help local families establish safe, reliable housing


Braving the frigid temperatures over the holiday season, the Tamarack North team presented their annual check for $5,000 to Habitat for Humanity Ontario Gateway North. The prominent building company has donated a total of $15,000 to date to the local Habitat organization, with 100 per cent of those funds designated to helping two partner families find affordable housing through the Addie Street Build in Parry Sound.

“Habitat for Humanity is the perfect charity of choice for our company,” said Tamarack President Chris Madden. “I absolutely love that together we are able to assist families in achieving home ownership and simultaneously deal with the issues that surround affordable housing in our area. I have always encouraged all our staff to get more involved.”

The Addie Street duplex, built through the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project, is another step by Habitat to help promote homeownership through the mobilization of volunteers and community partners in the Parry Sound region. 

“Thank you for your generosity in helping to build homes for local, hardworking partner families throughout the Ontario Gateway North region,” said Habitat’s Director of Development and Communications, Britta Gerwin. “These funds help us create strength, stability and self-reliance for our families.”
