Reduce. Reuse. Recyle... now add ReStore.
I volunteered to help at the Minneapolis ReStore a couple of weeks ago. It was genuinely fun! The staff and people were great. Lots of "stuff" to see, a home re-modeler's dream place. From corner brackets to furniture. From doors and windows to paint. Get to one of the two Habitat for Humanity ReStores in the Twin Cities and have a valuable adventure. And volunteering there is also a good idea!
We now have two ReStores in the metro area, one in New Brighton and one in south Minneapolis. The inventory in the ReStores varies from week to week, but includes appliances, furniture, windows, doors, lighting, tools and much more! It’s the perfect place for bargain seekers and DIYers to shop and find great deals for everything from small projects to large home remodeling updates.
Much of the merchandise has been donated by local businesses who want to share their surplus through Habitat, but they also accept donations from individuals. The paint supply is amazing, appliances are often a true bargain. See the stores and the merchandise inside for yourself. It's a great adventure!
Besides the merchandise, the staff is very helpful and friendly... and...
This year, proceeds from the ReStore will sponsor the construction of four homes for low-income Twin Cities families.
Check out the ReStore website for more info or to schedule a donation pickup. You can also volunteer to help at one of the stores, it's a fun time!
