DUBUQUE, Iowa – Theisen’s Supply Company in Dubuque is replacing $4000 worth of tools for Habitat for Humanity. That’s after organizers in Dubuque say someone stole power tools from a volunteer project site.

Volunteers are right in the middle of renovating an old home on Washington Street and building an addition. They’re adding a couple bedrooms upstairs and will donate the home to a single mom and her three kids.

Dubuque Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Eric Veltster said, “Someone stole all the power tools out of our trailer. They forced the lock and took everything that had a power cord on it. “

That disappointing discovery left Habitat for Humanity volunteers questioning humanity.

“It hurts. It hurts us as an organization and it hurts the family we are building for, “said Veltster.

Connie Ender from Infor Solutions said, “For somebody to actually go in and steal from that organization, it was very disappointing to see it.”

Immediately after learning of the theft, Connie Ender from Infor Solutions offered to give Habitat for Humanity $5000 to replace the tools. Turns out, her company was the fifth business to make that offer.

“It kind of restores our faith in our community. It’s sad that some individuals thought this was the only way they could provide for themselves, “said Veltster.
