Deep Gap: Save While You Give at the Habitat for Humanity Restore

How often can you make a $10 purchase and have it benefit so many people? Do you have “stuff” that you don’t quite know what to do with and have no way of getting rid of it? Do you like finding a diamond in the rough to re-purpose for something else? Well….the answer to these questions is the Watauga County Habitat for Humanity Restore.

The Restore relies solely on donations and is typically known for dreamstime_4442156being able to sell building supplies. On any given day lumber, tile, cabinets, windows and doors are available for purchase. They also have more simple things such as furniture, books, hardware, or really just about anything. Things are either brand new or gently used.

Everything is donated from homeowners and contractors. But their reach of donors also extends to the town of Boone, the state, county, and bigger contractors who when they go to remodel they can donate items to the Restore. It’s a relationship that has been cultivated over time. In the grand scheme of things everyone benefits. The landfill takes in less waste, the Restore is able to build more homes and we have an opportunity to buy something at a much lower cost. How can everyone not win? Any profit from the Restore goes directly into a fund to build new homes. Currently, there are more than 17 Habitat for Humanity homes in Watauga County that have been built.

Other than donations the Restore relies on volunteers who can help pick up items, keep the store clean and also have a knack for organizing and displaying the items they have available. If you are interested in volunteering please call Rick Melo at 268-9696.

If you have things that the Restore would be interested in please call and they will arrange to come to you and pick up your items. You do get a tax deduction for everything you donate. Again, it’s a win-win for everyone! The Restore would like for you to stop there before you go to the landfill. They may be able to use what you have. You can take anything there during store hours Monday-Saturday 9-5. Please don’t drop anything off after hours.

Rick Melo is the Manager for the Restore (and fellow yankee!) and he is a wealth of information. Stop in and talk to him about what you may be looking for and he’ll add your name to a wish list. Tony Caito is the Executive Director for Habitat for Humanity who is very passionate about what he does. He and his wife are expecting their 3rd child any day now! It was a lot of fun to talk to these guys.

I challenge all of you readers to take $10 to the Restore and buy something. In the comment section below please let us know what you bought and what you plan to do with it. I bought a desk in there for $12 a few weeks ago and soon I plan to sand it down and repaint it for my daughter. I’ll have a before and after picture to post.
