DeWalt donated ten tools including a reciprocating saw, circular saw, cordless drill and hammerdrill kit. Orgill Distribution donated a credit of $1000 that can be used on any purchase of building supplies from Allied Building Products Burlington branch.
“It is so nice to know how many people care about our mission,” said Sue Ann Leighty, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Salem County. “The tools will be put to good use on the next build.
