The Holston Habitat for Humanity ReStore is good for the environment… Something to think about as we celebrate Earth Day on Tuesday, April 22. Did you ever think about what happens to all of that stuff that is left over from construction jobs or is just wasted when contractors remodel a home or an office? That’s right, It goes into local landfills. Just as everywhere else, our landfills are getting overburdened with waste.
The Holston Habitat for Humanity ReStore happily accepts donations of unwanted building materials in addition to gently used furniture, appliances, housewares and electronics. These items are processed and then sold to the public, generating funds for the construction of local Habitat for Humanity houses. Buying from and donating to the Holston Habitat for Humanity ReStore helps reduce the amount of waste that goes into the local landfills and helps to provide local families with the opportunity to become homeowners.
The Holston Habitat for Humantiy ReStore is located at 750 East Main Street in Kingsport and is open to the public on Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Support the Holston Habitat for Humanity Restore by shopping, donating and/or volunteering today!
