NWBDC Funds Used to Open Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Spooner

Northwest Regional Planning Commission Program Manager Jeff Dietrich, pictured third from the left, behind the children, attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity (WRHFH) ReStore in Spooner on Saturday, September 14th.

Northwest Wisconsin Business Development Corporation (NWBDC) funds are being used to support the new store that will operate out of the former Spooner Country Store building on Highway 63.
The opening of the Spooner ReStore is one result of a merger between Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity, serving Polk and Burnett counties, and the Habitat affiliates in Rusk and Washburn counties which took place this summer. Eric Kube, executive director of Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity, said during the ribbon-cutting that the affiliate has moved from helping two families a year to 85 families this year, in large part due to the funds brought in by the ReStore.
