A healthy crowd of bargain-hunting shoppers perused the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Newport Saturday as the facility celebrated it’s second year in operation. The ReStore is Habitat’s retail outlet at 133 SE 1st, where donated household construction items can be offered at much reduced prices. And it includes furniture and fixtures.
Habitat for Humanity says they always need more volunteers for the store, but also for helping families build their own homes. Right now they need volunteers to help two families in Waldport to build new residences. If you have construction skills or don’t mind learning some, call 541-264-8585.
Habitat for Humanity also needs volunteers for their about-to-open brand new ReStore facility in Lincoln City. It’s located at 2150 SE Highway 1010, about a half-mile north of Taft. A call for donations has gone out. Donations are accepted by appointment only by calling 541-614-1060. They’re also looking for volunteers to help run the new ReStore at that location. Same number to call. They expect it’ll be open by June 1st.
