Habitat for Humanity collection a big success

Boy scouts (from left) Brett Howell, Ishaan Bakhle, Sam Yun and Scott Goldfarb volunteered their afternoon to help out in the H4H collection.

The Sept. 17 Habitat for Humanity Collection at the Bay Village Police Department was the largest turnout since we started the drop-off program in Bay in 2010, with over 100 donors. What a great response from the community! Look for the next drop-off to be scheduled in spring 2012.

Here is how you can support Habitat for Humanity:

If you are planning to remodel in the future, donate your old cabinets, sinks, hardware, and more by calling 216-429-3631 or have your remodeling contractor call.  

You can also drop off items directly at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, located at 2110 W. 110th St., Cleveland, from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Tuesday-Friday.

Items accepted by Habitat for Humanity include: furniture, building supplies (windows, doors, kitchen and bath cabinets, lighting fixtures, sinks, tubs, showers, plumbing/electric/HVAC items, lumber, tile, full rolls of wallpaper), tools (hand, power, yard), landscaping items, and more. Items must be in good, usable condition. Items can be as small as cabinet handles or as large as a Jacuzzi. Habitat does NOT accept mattresses, paint or clothing.

Donations to the ReStore come from a variety of sources and are then prepared for sale to the public. All items are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The ReStore is open to the public Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you need an item for the home, consider shopping at the ReStore.

Habitat for Humanity is also looking for volunteers to work the store. You do not need to do any heavy lifting, just help the customers. If you are interested, please contact the ReStore directly.
