The numbers are in... and we're making an impact!

The numbers are in... and we're making an impact!

Each year, ReStore donors, shoppers, and volunteers make an incredible impact on Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity's mission—and this year was no different.

ReStore impact infographic - text description below.

From July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017 we received 14,000 donations from individuals and businesses in the local community, and had over 48,000 shoppers make purchases at our Minneapolis and New Brighton stores. We also had 4,100 volunteers lend a hand receiving donations, cashiering, helping to stock our shelves, and sorting and pricing materials. Twin Cities ReStores have also diverted 940 tons of materials from local landfills, and increased our green efforts by breaking down materials that couldn't be sold into their recyclable components. Our team also leveraged our two new cardboard balers in support of our recycling efforts. 

All of these efforts combined translated into our stores being able to help sponsor the building of six Habitat for Humanity homes in the seven county metro area. We continue to be amazed by our supporters each and every year and cannot wait to see what we're able to do in this coming year!

Shop, Donate, Volunteer at ReStore!
