Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties cordially invites all local individuals and families to the grand opening of its new ReStore! The event will take place on Saturday, July 20, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the new facility, 900 West Third Street in Winona.
The ReStore shelves will be stocked with fresh inventory (including plumbing, lighting, tools, and garden supplies) and the sales floor will display beautiful furniture and appliances. Leighton Broadcasting will be broadcasting live from the event, and Miss Winona will be in attendance wearing her crown. Light refreshments will be served.
The Winona ReStore first opened in 2003. Its mission is to raise funds for the local Habitat for Humanity by selling gently used and new building materials and furniture from manufacturers, stores, contractors, and individuals. Not only does this help divert reusable material from the landfill, but also provides local residents with affordable home-improvement materials and furniture. The store diverts more than 100 tons of reusable goods from the landfill each year, and all proceeds help finance home building and repair projects in the community.
Above all, the Habitat ReStore seeks to live out the belief that everyone should have a decent place to live.
The ReStore is currently accepting donations on Wednesdays through Saturdays at 900 West Third Street but will not be opening its doors for shopping until Saturday, July 20.
Habitat for Humanity is an equal housing opportunity lender. To learn more about the program or schedule a free donation pick up, visit the Habitat website at habitatwinona.org or call 507-457-0003.
