"House of Cards" Donations at the ReStore

The Aberdeen ReStore’s staff and volunteers have been busily unpacking several truckloads of furniture and props donated by the “House of Cards” production company. The donations have included chairs, desks, cabinets, light fixtures as well as smaller items.

“We’re so grateful for the donation,” said Cara Middendorf, Aberdeen ReStore Manager ( pictured at left ). “Every donation we receive, from private citizens, businesses or companies, supports homeownership opportunities in Harford and Cecil counties. All of the proceeds from our ReStore go back into helping low-income families live in affordable homes.”
