The news broke Monday, Jan. 13, that a tool trailer belonging to the North Collin County Habitat for Humanity had been stolen in McKinney. By that Friday, the CoServ Charitable Foundation (CCF) had agreed to provide a $12,000 emergency grant to replace the trailer and its contents. On Tuesday, the check was presented to Habitat officials at their McKinney headquarters.
“Thanks to CoServ, we won’t miss a beat in building this house,” said Habitat Board Member and House Leader Larry Hoffman. “The woman we’re building this for was pretty emotional when she heard the news about the theft, and she was thrilled to hear that we were still on schedule.”
Celeste Cox, the organization’s executive director, said the silver lining to the trailer’s theft was the attention it drew to Habitat.
“We really appreciate CoServ’s actions and appreciate how supportive the community has been, as well,” she said.
CCF Executive Director Dennis Engelke said the grant would not have been possible without the financial support of CoServ Members, Customers and Employees.
“By contributing to CCF through Operation Roundup® and direct donations, they help make our communities better places to live,” he said.
