Donate your time or money

Today, I would like to tell you about an organization that is helping low income families, who do not qualify for a loan to buy a home, build their homes.  Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1985 and spans 93 countries.  Since its inception it has built over 225,000 homes and is now building a new home every 21 minutes!  What really sparked my interest in this non-profit organization is the ReStore, the purpose of which is to divert quality new and used building materials from our landfill.  So the next time you want to update the look of your home and in turn need to get rid of a few times that are perhaps still usable (but just doesn’t suite your style anymore) consider donating them to the ReStore.  They will resale these items in their store to generate funds for the building of new homes.

A new program they are piloting at the moment is the resale of quality new & used kitchens.  A H4H construction crew will come to your home, demo your kitchen cabinets and transport them to the ReStore for resale.   It does not cost the homeowner anything to do this and they get the satisfaction of knowing they have not contributed unneccessarily to the landfill.

For more information about the organization and to find out how you can donate your time and/or money please visit www.habitat.ca
