NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Ace Hardware manager Doug Wallace is "Mr. November" for Habitat for Humanity and is launching a fundraiser for them starting Monday.
Pictures with Mr. November are available Monday, November 12 through Friday, November 16th during store hours at the North Platte Ace Hardware. The cost for a picture with him is $1 and Ace will match it with all the money going back to the area Habitat for Humanity.
Wallace has a mustache and is Mr. November for the Habitats fundraising calendar so they have blended the two titles and also call him "Mr. Movember." Wallace has some stick on mustaches you may wear if you come in for a picture with him.
Dalene Skates is the Executive Director for the area Habitat for Humanity and said they are a great partner.
"I think this is so wonderfully unique and wonderfully Doug, it's so much fun to hang out with them and partner with them. We started parenting with them a couple of years ago, when they started tinting the paint for us that we put on the exterior of all of our homes," said Skates.
This is the first year of the fundraiser and both Wallace and Skates say they are excited to see the results.
