Houston-based manufacturer, Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America (MCFA) recently donated a Cat lift truck model NR4000P to Houston Habitat for Humanity.  The organization will use the 4,000-pound capacity reach truck at the Houston Habitat for Humanity ReStore to assist with the lifting and moving of construction materials.  The Houston Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a home improvement resale store where items are sold at greatly reduced prices. Open to the public, the store sells both new and like-new materials, and sales proceeds are used in support of the Houston Habitat for Humanity mission.  The donation, valued at $28,000, is comparable to underwriting more than two days’ worth of construction on a five-day house build.
