Door County Habitat for Humanity is helping furnish more homes than landfills thanks in part to its successful Restore. During their most recent audit two years, the Restore in Sturgeon Bay saved 20 tons of building materials, furniture, and appliances from landfills. The sale of such items helps Door County Habitat for Humanity with their mission of providing affordable housing for deserving families. Restore manager Megan Dietz says the organization and its volunteers try to make it as easy as possible for people to find what they are looking for and for others to give new life to old items.
The Restore is open Monday through Saturday with volunteers accepting donations during their posted hours. You can see their newest items online on their Facebook page.
