The Habitat 53° Chapter of Habitat for Humanity in Flin Flon is reopening its ReStore Saturday. The ReStore accepts donations of building material, appliances, office furniture, cupboards and other gently used unwanted or discontinued items which they sell at a reasonable price to raise money to build a home for a low income working family. They’d especially like to have people who are building or renovating come by to see what they have available or what can be donated to the store.
Habitat ran the ReStore last September and October and continued with other fundraising over the winter including a coffee house, a white party at the Unwinder and a tea. Their penny drive continues with containers in various businesses. They have collected 572 pounds of coins and bills for a total of 2585dollars. They are developing plans for future fundraising events.
The ReStore is located at the Armories site next to Twin Motors and you can come in to shop or drop items off from 10 to 3 Saturdays until the end of September.
