LADD – The LaSalle, Putnam and Bureau County Habitat for Humanity is beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel after their continued struggle with the pandemic economy. With the help of Habitat for Humanity International and community support, Executive Director Sally VanCura says the Ladd build on South Iowa Street is moving along and the team is ready to put a roof on the house.

VanCura says Habitat International stepped up to provide a grant to cover roofing materials and the Ladd community is hosting a fundraiser on July 24th at Dicks Tap to offset lumber prices. Although the Ladd build’s budget was increased a second time, now at an additional $20,000, VanCura believes because of these efforts, their lumber debt could decrease back to $14,000.
