Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman began his Monday bright and early with a $3,000 donation to Habitat for Humanity.
Bowman is spending the day helping to build a home in the west end for a deserving Winnipeg family.
“Habitat does tremendous work in our city building safe, affordable housing for purchase by low-income working families in our community,” Bowman said.
Proceeds came from Bowman’s inaugural State of the City address in March, which drew in about 1,100 people. Local businessman Albert El Tassi, CEO of Peerless Garments, matched the contribution for a total of $6,000.
Habitat for Humanity Manitoba works to improve quality of life in communities by mobilizing community volunteers and partners to help build affordable housing for purchase by low-income working families in need.
