Habitat for Humanity - and the ReStore
Many of you may know of Habitat for Humanity for all of their amazing work building affordable homes for those in need. Their mission is awesome! So I also wanted to be sure you knew of their stores. Six in Toronto and even more throughout the GTA, not to mention all over Canada.
The stores are a great resource for donating your own unused household items to, but don't forget to check them out for possible purchases as well. You might find a gently used kitchen, an old mantel, some great windows or vintage lighting and they even have new things from overstocks and imperfections. Imagine, a place to shop where your purchases are amazing deals and help in so many ways!!
I had the privilege of meeting Mark Rodgers, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity, at the IDS last week and when I told him I would blog about their efforts, he was thrilled. I hope you too will pass along your knowledge of this great resource. Check out the links below where it says share for an easy way to help spread the word right now.
