The ReStoration Corner
***We're temporarily closing ReStore and realize this will effect build time for our upcyclers. The upcycle challenge is postponed. Read our Coronavirus Response page for updates***
We're happy to announce that Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore is hosting its 3rd Upcycle Challenge! The challenge theme was created around a common problem we all face at one point or another. How do we store and organize our stuff?
If you're shopping for a refrigerator, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore has a great selection of refrigerators and other used appliances. But what do you need to know when buying used appliances? ReStore's Jan Hagerman tells you what to look for in this edition of ReStoration Corner.
Don't let your annual spring cleaning sneak up on you. Whether you're going to dedicate an entire day to decluttering your home or garage, or you only have 10 minutes to spare, we've got some ideas to get you on your way to a clutter free home!
Regular ReStore shoppers may have already noticed, but our New Brighton location is expanding. ReStore sales have grown month over month which is one reason why our home improvement outlet needs to grow. This expansion has created an anticipated challenge, and we need your help. We need donations to help fill the new space!
In 2012 Don Gustafson was hired as a Donations Receiving Assistant, otherwise known as the ReStore donation truck driver. He’s since logged more than 100,000 miles for ReStore, and operated in all types of weather. The temperature has ranged from -25 to 105 degrees, and has endured a lot wind, rain, and snow.
Don has since retired but found his way back to ReStore to assist when donation pick up requests skyrocket. I guess this technically isn't a retirement when he’s still driving a ReStore truck. “I tried retirement; it didn't take,” says Don. “This job remains the most interesting position I have held in my 50+ years of work experience. I give my customers back the space in their garages, while telling them about the work we do at the ReStore to support Habitat for Humanity's mission.”
When Claire Sorman first heard about ReStore’s Freestyle Flip Upcycle Challenge, she knew she wanted to participate.
The demand and need of a home improvement outlet in our community is evident with over 18,000 donations a year and over 58,000 shoppers a year at ReStore. Year over year growth has resulted in one thing for our New Brighton location... We must expand!
