Most people across the country have heard of or been involved with Habitat for Humanity®. Habitat for Humanity is a Christian ministry which believes strongly that every man, woman and child regardless of race, color or social status deserve safe and affordable housing. They provide low-cost housing to families here in the United States and abroad regardless of their religious beliefs, if any at all.
Habitat for Humanity now encompasses many youth and volunteer programs; including disaster relief wherever possible. You can visit their website for more information at: http://www.habitat.org/how/default.aspx.
The concept of ReStore was created to help generate funds to support Habitat for Humanity's mission to continue to build affordable housing. The Fox Valley ReStore is a 501c3 charity.
What is a ReStore?
