Habitat for Humanity ReStore, El Dorado

Overview

The ReStore is a successful operation wherein El Dorado County acquires donated, used, and new building materials. These materials are either used in building Habitat for Humanity homes or are resold to the community at below wholesale prices. Funds from the ReStore also help to provide future funding for local building projects. Not only is the ReStore a great source for affordable building supplies and material for the community, it also provides the opportunity for those in the building industry to clear out old stock and discontinued items thus reducing their disposal costs. By providing an outlet for these materials, everyone wins including our landfills. ReStore is proud to promote recycling to help protect our environment.

History
