Spring Valley Alco store manager Deb Prudoehl saw it as "a win-win" situation.
She had excess hardware inventory due to a change in suppliers for the local Alco store and Habitat for Humanity has a need for tools and products to use in its projects. She contacted the Habitat office in Winona, which services Fillmore County as well, and asked if it wanted a donation of $15,468 in goods. The agency sent a truck over to pick up the materials last week.
The materials covered everything from ceiling lights and paint to plumbing systems and power tools. She had considered donating to other agencies or even the school, but speculated that they would be able to only use a portion of the goods.
"We figured this was a group that could use everything we had," she said.
Habitat for Humanity is building a house in Harmony now and has contacted Spring Valley officials about the possibility of doing some type of project locally. Habitat also has a used goods store in Winona that it stocks. Sales from that store go to support projects.
