Habitat for Humanity Restore Grand Reopening
The ReStore moved to a new and bigger building in February of this year.
The Grand Reopening Celebration will feature a blessing and hula performance from a local hālau, a 20% off storewide sale and lunch cooked by the Hilo Kiwanis Club for purchase.
Customers can also participate in DIY clinics for adults and keiki, and enter a raffles to win prizes from local businesses.
The blessing will take place at 8:30 a.m. The store is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with raffle drawings
every half an hour.
Customers are also encouraged to bring donations of new or gently-used household items, furniture, appliances, or building materials to help “stuff-a- truck.”
All items are sold back to the community at a fraction of retail price, and donors are able to get a tax-receipt for their donation.
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is the retail arm of the organization, helping to raise much-needed money to fund the building of new homes, and critical repairs on existing homes, for local families.
It also acts as a recycling facility, keeping approximately 600 tons of material from our Hawai’i Island landfills each year.
Residents can donate their new and gently used items to the ReStore to receive a tax deduction.
This is Habitat for Humanity’s third ReStore on the island, with two other locations in Kona and Waimea.
