Habitat gets help from Brickl on home project



La Crosse’s Habitat for Humanity program gets a helping hand from a local contractor in finishing some homes for families. 

Habitat director Kahya Fox says the shutdowns resulting from coronavirus reduced the number of people who could help build homes. 

But then, one company stepped up, as Brickl Brothers brought in workers to do the framing for a new house on Hood Street in La Crosse.    

Fox says the framing for a house might normally take four weeks, with just volunteer workers, but she says Brickl Brothers can get that work done in a week.  

The Habitat Re-Store in La Crosse has been closed since late March, to keep its workers safe.

Fox says Re-Store will remain closed until June 2nd.
