Habitat for Humanity ReStore Creates Reciprocal Benefits for Local Businesses
Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a retail outlet open to the public that sells quality, gently-used and surplus construction and home improvement materials as well as home furnishings for a fraction of regular retail prices. The ReStore, located at 11 Distributor Road in Worcester, wants you to know that they welcome donations of these materials and other items from local businesses.
Acceptable donations include appliances, books, building materials, cabinets and countertops, doors, flooring materials, furniture, hardware, lighting, lumber, paint, plumbing fixtures, tools, windows, clothing, shoes, fashion accessories, and backpacks. Donations of these items helps keep the ReStore stocked for the community and saves donors burdensome disposal costs, all donations are tax deductible too. Donations are accepted at the Restore Wednesday- Saturday 10:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. but, if you can’t make it to the ReStore, they will arrange a pick up for your donations from any of the 42 cities and towns in its service area. The ReStore prides itself as an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream – it keeps thousands of pounds of reusable materials out of landfills each week.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which opened in September of 2009, is a tremendous source of funding for Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester’s home build projects. Since 1985, the local Habitat affiliate has partnered with low-income families to build 34 homes as part of its mission to end poverty housing.
