By the end of the year, Johnson County homeowners looking to remodel will find inexpensive or unique items for sale, and their purchases will help local families in need.
Habitat for Humanity will open its own gently used home furnishings store to help pay for future construction projects. The ReStore, a fundraising tool used by almost 800 Habitat for Humanity groups across the country, will allow people to pick through cabinets, bathroom fixtures, lighting and other items for their own homes.
“We can use these proceeds to do more, to build more. It helps us to be a more vital organization in the community,” said Lee Ann Wilbur, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Johnson County.
