Members of Up & Coming visited the north side of Sioux Falls this week to learn more about the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, a business run in coordination with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls. Habitat builds homes with families in need, coordinates neighborhood revitalization projects, and runs the ReStore that sells donated home building supplies and goods. Alisha Grove, ReStore Coordinator, gave the members a tour of the facility and taught them about the store and what the organization does for the community of Sioux Falls. Learn more below.
What does the ReStore offer for the community of Sioux Falls?
The ReStore is a non-profit store that provides home improvement materials and appliances to people of all income levels. The ReStore keeps 295 TONS of useable materials out of our local landfill each year.
When people spend money at the ReStore, where does it go?
Most importantly, it stays local. 100% of the funds generated through the ReStore go toward our mission to build affordable, decent homes.
How can young professionals help your business and/or overall mission?
There are a few pivotal ways to help out!
Donate – We are always in need of donations! Some of the most commonly sought items are; appliances, cabinetry, light fixtures, plumbing, building materials, tools, and home goods. We accept donations Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday 9am-2pm. Pick up service is also available if you are unable to drop off an item.
Shop – The ReStore carries both new and gently used items. We are open to the public 6 days a week and are a fantastic resource for every project!
Volunteer – The ReStore is always seeking cashiers! No experience needed, just a friendly smile! Shift are 9am-12pm, 12pm-3pm, or 3pm-6pm. We also seek individuals who are able to drive truck, lift, and help out with donation pick-ups and other projects!
