Getting ready to start a DYI home improvement?

When it comes time to spruce up your house with a “do-it-yourself” project, many people aren’t sure where to go for the supplies they’ll need. A big-box retailer? A contractor’s warehouse? Maybe order it online? Before you do any of these things, you might want to check out an excellent local source that supports a good cause…especially if you’re on a budget! It’s the Trinity Habitat for Humanity ReStores.

Habitat ReStores are retail outlets where used and new building materials are sold at a fraction of retail prices. Proceeds from the stores help Habitat’s mission of building homes and hope. ReStores also help the environment by rechanneling good, usable materials into use.

Maybe you’ve already done some remodeling and you have some left-over materials–used doors, windows, light fixtures, etc. Donate them! It helps our community and our environment.
