BRAMPTON, Ont. — Muir’s Cartage and Custom Building Products Canada (CBPC) have teamed up to provide a “major donation” for Habitat for Humanity’s Brampton, Ont.-based retail outlet.
Muir’s, a Concord, Ont.-based carrier, helped major supplier CBPC deliver 40 skids of ThinSet mortar, pre-mixed grout and tiling tools and supplies to the Rutherford Road ReStore in Brampton.
Habitat officials have said they will share the donation with Habitat affiliates across Ontario over the next few months. ReStore manager, Daryl Morrison, said he plans to advise Ontario’s 34 Habitat affiliates that the tiling products are available for delivery to any HFH home build site or to the local ReStore for distribution to the public.
“This is yet another example of the ideal partnerships Habitat Brampton would like to build between the public, private and charity sectors,” Morrison said. “When we come together with the common goal to increase the availability of affordable housing as a means to end the cycle of poverty, the whole community shares in the benefits.”
Ray Barrett of Muir’s Cartage was on hand for the delivery. Muir’s Cartage is the core carrier for Home Depot Home in Ontario and Atlantic Canada. Home Depot is a national supporter of Habitat for Humanity and is a prime sponsor of the Elliott House Heritage House restoration project in Brampton scheduled to be completed later this summer.
