Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Department & Habitat Muskoka

The Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Department spent the last weekend of July fighting housing poverty with Habitat Muskoka. With their help, we were able to complete the framing and set-up of the four exterior walls, plus the framing of one interior room. 
Although the climate has become easier to work in over the past couple weeks, the team naturally adapted to working in the sun's heat, and had the pleasure of enjoying lunch in the shade, courtesy of Deerhurst Resort. 

At the end of their shift on Sunday, the firefighters spent some extra time to celebrate their accomplishments, tired though satisfied from a hard day's work. 

The firefighters and Muskoka Community Church are just two of many groups that illustrate the strong support from the Huntsville community. Months before the build began, we couldn't help but notice something about the people in Huntsville: the intense drive they had to bring positive change to their community. Our volunteers have shown some great dedication to the build thus far, and the support from neighbours, media and general public has been beyond out expectations. We look  forward to rewarding Huntsville with the new Muskoka North ReStore, which is scheduled to open on August 14th.
