At Tonn and Blank Construction, we take great pride in protecting the best interest of the communities we build in. A prominent portion of our identity and fulfillment comes from donating our time, resources and profits without hesitation to support not-for-profit organizations.

The Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana connected with our team late 2021 with a need to expand their existing Griffith ReStore facility in Gary, Indiana. Habitat ReStore reduces the number of items going to landfills, reducing the carbon footprint. This generates income to build more safe, affordable homes for more families in Lake County.

We understand how challenging it can be for nonprofits to undertake projects like this, which is why our Community Giveback Program exists.  Our goal is to make it simple and attainable for them. Tonn and Blank’s Design team created renderings to allow a visual representation of how to best accommodate Habitat for Humanity’s needs.  Our field team ensured all construction activities, including concrete, roofing, and the wall panels prefabricated in our Off-Site Construction facility went smoothly.

The Griffith ReStore now has an additional 3,500 square feet of space to accommodate their storage needs to serve more families in the Lake County community.
