Thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment stolen from Habitat for Humanity in Mississauga
Last week, Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga experienced a theft from the Mississauga construction site.
The thieves forcibly broke into the complex and absconded with roughly $4,500 worth of tools and machinery.
The purloined equipment was taken from the Bristow-Law build site, which, when completed, would provide four new homes to deserving Mississauga families.
The theft comes approximately a year after a previous theft, wherein tools and machinery were also stolen from the charity.
"We like all charities rely heavily on the donations of others, so to have these tools stolen one year later is devasting," Julie Svensson Watt, director of communications for Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga, says in a statement to insauga.com.
CORRECTION: This story previously misidentified the location of the theft as the McFadden-MacMahon affordable housing project build site.
