Construction Company Donations Help Habitat ReStore
Bright and early one Thursday morning, two Bonville Construction trucks rolled into the Habitat for Humanity ReStore parking lot on N.C. 5 in Aberdeen.
They were pulling the company’s next donation behind them, a trailer with more than $19,000 in new windows they replaced for a customer.
“This is a great donation for the ReStore” said Ken Pierson, director of Restores for Habitat. “It’s always exciting to see donations roll in so we can sell them to the general public and turn them into the next home for a family in need.”
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore has been operating in Moore County for more than nine years. The mission is to collect donations of gently used household goods, building materials, appliances and furniture and use volunteer help to clean them up and sell them to the general public to raise much needed funds for Habitat for Humanity of the NC Sandhills.
Bonville Construction and many other businesses keep them in mind when they have excess or used items from a remodel.
“Individual homeowners are our bread and butter,” Pierson said. “We take almost anything in your home that’s in good usable condition. Donors get a tax deduction receipt, things are re-used instead of going to the landfills, and we help a family in need all at the same time. It’s a win-win-win situation.”
The Habitat ReStore also has a recycling program for cardboard, aluminum cans, anything metal, rechargeable batteries and any type of electronics.
There is a $5 handling fee for tube-type televisions and computer monitors.
Habitat for Humanity of the NC Sandhills has helped 192 families into safe simple affordable housing in the Sandhills area. Anyone needing more information can call (910) 295-2798 or come by the ReStore.
