Cliffs Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Cliffs Natural Resources Inc., announced a $50,000 pledge to North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity, which will be administered in $10,000 increments over five years. The money will be used to help build homes for low-income families in the communties that surround mine operations on the Iron Range. The first $10,000 check was delivered to Habitat for Humanity's executive director and board members at the construction site of a home in Eveleth last month. This is the first multi-year grant of its type received by North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity.
