Thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated with us at our Grand Re-Opening party on June 2nd as well as to everyone who helped throughout the planning and building process. All of us at the ReStore were excited to unveil the expansion we had seen take shape over the last several months. We have already noticed improvements to our operations – and we hope you have too!
The most obvious change is the increased space, which not only allows us to begin taking all of the same merchandise we have in the past, but it also permits us to begin selling home-wares and more of the same great items you already love. Our parking lot has also expanded greatly, so you should have no trouble finding a spot, even on our busiest days. We have separated out our covered donation drive thru lane, so donors will no longer have to fight traffic and try to maneuver around obstacles in order to drop off items. We hope you will enjoy all these improvements and more, as you donate, shop, and volunteer at the Bloomington ReStore.
Of course, all of these changes have a grander vision for the future of Habitat for Humanity of McLean County and our community as a whole. When you visit the ReStore to donate, shop, or volunteer, you’re making a difference for families in McLean County. Each item you drop off or buy—or both—brings us one step closer to building a Habitat home. Habitat homes generate income for the community, improve property values in entire neighborhoods, and create stable, healthy environments for families who work hard to secure bright futures for themselves and their children.
Together, we can build a community where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live. Thank you for doing your part.
