The upcoming Woodbridge Habitat for Humanity ReStore location is now accepting donations.
According to a release, the location has received the required permits to take in donations, and they’re looking for items to stock the store for their grand opening.
“Unlike other stores that buy merchandise to sell, the ReStore relies on donations of inventory from businesses, homeowners and renters,” stated a release.
The location is slated to open in the coming months, and will be located at 14055 Noblewood Plaza. Habitat for Humanity has an existing ReStore location in Manassas at 10159 Hastings Drive.
“It’s fall and it’s probably about the time you’re thinking of cleaning, remodeling and redecorating for the holidays. We want to encourage you to donate your gently used items to the ReStore. Donating to the ReStore keeps those items out of the landfill, someone gets a good deal when they repurpose the item and it’s all a great way to support families in the community through Habitat,” stated Habitat for Humanity Prince William County Operations Director Sam Druetzler in a release.
Habitat for Humanity Prince William County is currently working on several projects in the county, to help residents in need, and the funds raised in the ReStore assist with that effort.
“We are currently raising funds to help us stop plumbing leaks at a home in Manassas, do an extensive repair for a Veteran in Gainesville, and rehab two houses with families who would like to become homeowners. We’re excited to open the doors of the ReStore in Woodbridge so that we can expand the number of families we’re able to help in the coming years,” stated Habitat for Humanity Prince William County President Traci DeGroat in a release.
Staff will be on site Tuesday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to collect any donations that are dropped off.
“If donors have large items they cannot bring in themselves, they can schedule a pickup for a later time. Call 703-369-6145 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a pickup.”
More on the ReStore, from a release:
The ReStore accepts donations of new and gently used household items and building materials such as furniture, appliances, cabinetry, windows, hardware, lumber, tools, flooring, lighting, home décor and more. All donations are tax-deductible as the ReStore is operated by Habitat for Humanity Prince William County, a 501(c)3 charity. The donated items are sold to the general public at 40% – 90% off retail prices. Funds raised from the sale of merchandise at the ReStore help Habitat for Humanity build and repair homes in partnership with families who need safe and affordable housing
