HARTFORD, Conn. — The house renovation project on Capitol Avenue in Hartford is back on track for completion after the community came together to help Habitat for Humanity amid unexpected delays.
A new boiler and thousands of dollars worth of tools and supplies were stolen from the home back in January, which can be difficult for a non-profit organization to recover from. There hasn't been an update on who could have broken into the house.
Stanley Black & Decker, headquartered in New Britain, donated new tools to help volunteers get back to finishing the renovations. Habitat for Humanity is also halfway there to fully funding a new replacement boiler.
Those wanting to make a monetary donation to go toward purchasing a new boiler for the home can go to hfhncc.org/support. Select "Build Hope" under purpose to make sure the donation is allocated correctly.
The ultimate goal is to welcome a new family into the home on March 30.
