Why Donating to the ReStore Matters: Building Homes and Hope

Have you ever wondered where your donations to our ReStore go? Or perhaps you’re contemplating whether to donate that old sofa or extra lumber gathering dust in your garage. Let me tell you, donating to the ReStore is not just about getting rid of unwanted items; it’s about building homes and hope for families in need.

At Old Colony Habitat for Humanity, our ReStore plays a pivotal role in funding our mission to provide affordable housing solutions and community development. When you donate items or shop at our ReStore, you’re contributing directly to our efforts to build decent and affordable homes for families in our community.

Here’s how your donations make a difference:

  • Funding Home Builds: The proceeds from ReStore sales significantly contribute to financing our annual home builds. From purchasing construction materials to covering the costs of skilled labor, every dollar earned at the ReStore goes a long way in making homeownership dreams a reality for deserving families.
  • Promoting Sustainability: By donating gently used furniture, appliances, and building materials to the ReStore, you’re not only giving these items a second life but also contributing to environmental sustainability. Reusing and repurposing materials reduces waste and lessens the demand for new resources, aligning with our commitment to building a more sustainable future.
  • Empowering Families: Perhaps the most significant impact of your donations is on the families we serve. Affordable housing is more than just shelter; it’s the foundation for a brighter future. Through homeownership, families gain stability, security, and a sense of pride in their community. Your support through the ReStore helps break the cycle of poverty and empowers families to build better lives for themselves and future generations.

So, the next time you’re decluttering your home or embarking on a renovation project, consider donating to the ReStore. Your contribution, no matter how small, has the power to transform lives and communities. Together, we can build homes and hope for those in need.
