Businesses Partner With Habitat to Help Nonprofit
Best Buy and Carolina Mobile Storage are partnering with Habitat for Humanity in an effort to raise more money for Habitat homes and to keep used appliances out of the landfill.
Best Buy in Aberdeen will donate all the used appliances it picks up from its customers when it delivers a new appliance to Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
Carolina Mobile Storage, of Southern Pines, has donated a mobile storage container that Best Buy will use to store the appliances until Habitat can pick them up.
The Habitat Moore Store will pick up the appliances each week for testing and cleaning. Any working appliances will be sold at the Moore Store to raise funds for Habitat. The nonworking appliances will be properly recycled for scrap, and those funds will also go toward the next home.
"This is a great partnership that is a win-win proposition," a Habitat spokesman said. "You get a new appliance, and the old ones are handled in an earth-friendly way and best of all you have helped raise money for the next Habitat home here in the NC Sandhills.
"We at Habitat for Humanity of the NC Sandhills would like to thank both Best Buy and Carolina Mobile Storage for joining together in this project. We look forward to more businesses joining us to help end substandard housing here in the NC Sandhills."
Anyone needing information can contact Ken Pierson, director of ReStores, at (910) 295-2798.
