Habitat For Humanity holding ReStore donation drive

The Habitat ReStore is conducting a donation drive to “ReStock the ReStore.”

The ReStore depends entirely on donations of gently used building materials, appliances and furniture, and other items.

These items come from individual homeowners and business. Habitat then sells them to the public at the ReStore located at 908 West Isabella St.

All of the profits from the ReStore go to construction of Habitat houses for low-income families.

For ReStock the ReStore, the Habitat truck is ready to go to Wicomico, Worcester and Somerset counties to pick up items.

To donate, call the ReStore at 410-749-6325 and schedule a free pick-up. All donations receive our thanks for helping out with our mission to build low-income housing. Donors receive a tax donation form.

Donations are also accepted at the ReStore during normal business hours.

The donation drive offers several benefits to residents,” said Jim Phillips, ReStore manager.  “Donations help keep the community clean and clear of recyclable items, and donations prevent these items from ending up in the landfill.

“This is also an easy way for people to be involved in a good organization such as Habitat,” he said. “Also, individuals can find items that are needed for their homes and businesses at bargain prices.”

Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County has built 60 houses.  The local affiliate has built also repaired 10 houses thru the Neighborhood Revitalization.Initiative.

Habitat relies on building partnerships, volunteer labor, and donated materials to continue to produce safe, decent, affordable housing to low income homeowners.The houses are sold to qualified families with a no-interest, 30-year mortgage carried by Habitat.

The payments made by the homeowners are then recycled to continue to provide home-owning opportunities for deserving families.
