Iowa State Bank and Trust Company of Fairfield, Iowa, has made a $2,500 donation to the Greater Fairfield Area Habitat for Humanity.

The donation will go toward funding the organization’s ReStore, a discount home improvement store which supports Habitat for Humanity’s efforts in the area. All profits from sales, after operating expenses go directly to the affiliate to support its charity mission of building homes for local people and families in need of affordable, safe housing.

The mission of the store is two-fold: to raise funds to help Greater Fairfield Area Habitat for Humanity build and repair homes for low-income families in our community; and to practice good stewardship of the environment by recycling usable resources.

Greater Fairfield Area Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.

The $133 million Iowa State Bank and Trust has two branches in Fairfield.
