The Habitat ReStore
Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County’s ReStore is the place to shop for new and gently-used home building materials at affordable prices!
The ReStore accepts donations, subject to customer demand, from contractors, suppliers, individuals and organizations. The ReStore then re-sells these goods to the general public to help fund the construction of new Habitat houses within the local community. The ReStore performs a valuable community service by diverting large amounts of reusable materials from landfills and providing these products to the public at affordable prices.
Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County is offering the public the opportunity to express their “do-it-yourself” talents while helping people in need. ReStore Remix was developed as a series of repurposing classes that focus on using donated materials, like pallets, stained glass and doors, to create works of art that can be taken home or given to Habitat families to brighten their lives. People who are passionate about Pinterest projects, the recycling of materials and becoming more involved in their local community are encouraged to participate. Occurs the second Saturday of every month, 10:30am-12:30pm. Registration & payment must be received in advance of session. Closed toe shoes are required. Bring water and snacks for your personal needs.
