Recycled SDS Fencing Benefits Pueblo Habitat for Humanity

The Pueblo Habitat for Humanity's mission will get a boost as a result of a donation of chain link fence used for the Southern Delivery System water project donated by Colorado Springs Utilities. 


"We are so pleased to provide this worthy organization the fencing we used for SDS in Pueblo County. We have no further use for this fencing, and we knew it would be beneficial to others who needed fencing," said John Fredell, SDS Program Director.


“This is a win-win donation for us,” said Donna Garcia, Executive Director with Habitat for Humanity of Pueblo, Inc.  “This fencing will be for sale in our ReStore on South Prairie Avenue in Pueblo which will help our customers to improve or maintain their own properties," she said. The proceeds from the donation and sale will help to assist in funding Habitat’s ongoing mission to eliminate substandard housing through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes in Pueblo County. ”

Colorado Springs Utilities donated more than 2,000 linear feet of chain-link fencing, which was used as safety fencing around construction sites for the SDS pipeline. Habitat estimates the value of the fencing to be $2,000.

This most recent donation follows previous SDS donations of salvaged household materials from five homes demolished to build SDS. Items donated from these homes included appliances, doors, garage doors, cabinets, light fixtures, sinks, toilets, blinds, curtains, hardware from doors and cabinets.


Habitat for Humanity of Pueblo, Inc. has built 37 homes with volunteers and partner family labor and has another foundation  prepared for its 38th home.
