Last week, the Fremont Area Habitat for Humanity was in a bind.

When you hear the word “giving back” or “community ties”, what do you think of? For most of us, we feel a sense of warmth and appreciation to the people and communities who helped us grow. Whether you’re giving your time or finances, there’s nothing more important than supporting your community. At Christensen Lumber Company, one of our core values is community service and involvement—we appreciate our community’s support, and we believe there is no better way to show our appreciation than giving back.
