We’re officially two weeks past our ReStore Grand ReOpening and we’ve been thrilled with the new space! The ReSet exceeded our expectations and we had 77 volunteers come out to our ReStore over the three-day remodel. We would like to give special thanks to the Knights of Columbus, Kings Valley Charter School, Collaborative Employment Innovations (CEI), and Homelife Inc. During this time volunteers helped to clean, move, and organize our entire store without complaint. We deeply appreciate each volunteer who choose to spend their time helping Habitat for Humanity during the ReSet. Another HUGE thanks goes out to TOGO’s, Papa’s Pizza, and American Dream who donated food for our volunteers during the event. Thank you!
If you visit the ReStore today, you’ll (hopefully!) notice how clean and organized it is. Clarrissa, one of our ReStore staff members, noted that “Customers seem to be coming in simply to see the new organized space! It has attracted so many more people to our store”. Without the help of our community, none of this would have been possible. This goes to show that the simple task of volunteering your time can make a big impact, especially with Habitat.
As you know, proceeds of the ReStore go towards building and repairing homes throughout Benton County. All of the inventory comes from donations within the community, from individuals to businesses and churches to schools. Nearly any home item imaginable can be purchased at a discount price, including furniture appliances, and building materials. The ReStore not only helps to build affordable housing, but it helps prevent usable items from being put in landfills and provides quality building materials at discount prices. To donate or shop, visit our newly organized and renovated ReStore at 4840 SW Philomath Blvd Corvallis, Oregon 97333!
