South Shore Habitat ReStore in Hanover Celebrates 2nd Anniversary
ReStore is an earth friendly home improvement and donation center that sells new and used building materials, appliances, furniture and home goods at discounted prices. The organization accepts donations of items and then resells the items to the public. One hundred percent of all proceeds benefit South Shore Habitat for Humanity and its mission of delivering affordable homeownership opportunities to families
Instead of having items end up in the landfill, ReStore offers people the chance to recycle and repurpose gently used items. People are encouraged to donate gently used items that they no longer have use for. The items are then available for people to purchase and repurpose in creative ways.
"We thank everyone in the community that has donated, volunteered and shopped at our store over the past two years and we invite everyone to come in and we what we are about," said Patrick Gately, Manager of ReStore. "Our plan in the coming year is to host a series of "Do it Yourself" workshops on how to repurpose furniture and finding creative new ways to reuse furniture and household items."
