What is the Habitat ReStore?
Donors may benefit by avoiding landfill fees, and by receiving a tax deduction on contributions. Receipts are provided.
In addition to raising funds for Habitat for Humanity, the ReStore helps the environment by diverting tons of reusable building materials away from area landfills.
Habitat ReStore Mission:
1) Provide good stewardship of sustainable resources in the community by diverting reusable materials from the landfill.
2) Provide an affordable option to area families who want to remodel and improve their homes.
3) Help provide additional funding to support the construction of future Partner Families' homes.
