r By Rick McBriderHabitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances to the public at a fraction of retail prices. Habitat for Humanity of Utah County owns and operates two ReStore locations in Utah County, and proceeds are used to build homes in the local community. The public is always welcome to shop and donate.
Habitat ReStores need your donations to keep the Habitat mission alive. Habitat ReStores are great for the community because they help keep usable material out of our landfills, provide a place for affordable options, and help recycle metal and paint. ReStores have a wonderful paint program. They sell paint that has been remixed and tested at a fraction of the cost and they keep thousands of gallons of unused paint out of the landfills.
