Earlier this year, the Department of Public Works promoted Habitat for Humanity ReStore through a flyer in the water bill. At that time, DPW told me that they were waiting on volunteers to coordinate the effort.
It looks like they got them, but only for two weekends (at least for now)*.
According to the Town website, the ReStore site was open on June 7th and will open again this Saturday, June 14th from 8:00 am-12:00 pm.
Donations to ReStore will be sold to support of Habitat for Humanity. Their primary goal is to:
Generate funds to build affordable homes in the metrowest/Greater Worcester area, allowing hard-working, low income families achieve the dream of home ownership in accordance with our ecumenical mission.
The DPW flyer from this spring promoted –
- Have good, gently used items in your home that can be resold?
- Want to make a tax deductible donation to Habitat for Humanity?
- Want to keep potentially resellable material from going into a landfill?
Donating to the ReStore is a good, responsible way to help the community and the environment!
So, if you are interested in helping the cause, swing by the Transfer Station on Saturday with your donations.
