The BMO Harris Community Affairs Foundation presented a $2,500 check to Habitat for Humanity Northwoods Friday afternoon at the organization’s ReStore on Kemp Street in Rhinelander. Habitat for Humanity President Jim Hohman said the money will go into the general fund to assist with building projects.

The Karen Ziegenbein family was the selected recipient of the home currently under construction near Rhinelander. Hohman said he expects the home to be completed by the end of the year.
Families accepted into the program receive an interest-free loan and volunteer help building a home. The Ziegenbeins are required to put in 250 volunteer hours, either working on the home or helping out at the ReStore. Hohman said the organization is always seeking applicants.
