Habitat For Humanity Trailer Stolen In Grantsburg

A trailer being used to help build a Habitat for Humanity home in Grantsburg was recently stolen. The 24-foot trailer contained tools and building materials, and was owned by Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity of St. Croix Falls. On Saturday, Dec. 15 at about 10 p.m. An eyewitness saw the trailer being moved but didn’t realize a theft was in progress. That eyewitness told authorities that two people in a white Dodge pickup took the trailer.

Habitat for Humanity is a well-known Christian nonprofit organization that builds homes for people who may otherwise not be able to have a home. The organization is funded by donations and staffed by volunteers. The Director of Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity said that everything that was stolen was purchased with donated funds.

The trailer had been locked up, with a chain looped through holes in the rims of the tires and then around a tree, but that chain was cut. Anyone with information on the whereabouts is asked to contact the Grantsburg police.

Those interested in helping Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity can make a donation by sending it to: WRHFH, 2201 US Hwy 8, St. Croix Falls, WI 54024.
