Macomb Habitat for Humanity Welcomes New Family


MOUNT CLEMENS — Macomb County Habitat for Humanity and major financial contributor Great Lakes Recycling, today welcomed the Drobot family into their new Roseville home on Fern Street.

The Habitat partner family (a single mother and her three children) has put in 250 sweat equity hours and participated in classes to prepare them for homeownership. They will purchase the home with a zero equivalent loan and become proud taxpaying residents of the city.

Besides the financial generosity of Great Lakes Recycling’s management, their staff volunteered extensively on the project. They, along with volunteers from Beaumont Health System, another contributor, made all the difference. Other partners included: Ogne Roofing (who donated labor on the roof); WOW Internet Cable staff members, and Austin Krieger, the Eagle Scout who recently donated 50 tool boxes (one of which the family will receive) and $800 cash.

“Great Lakes Recycling is an example of a Macomb County business whose leadership deeply cares about its community, said Helen Hicks, executive director Macomb County Habitat for Humanity.
