A Good Year For Our Building Material Recovery Program

A Good Year for Our Building Material Recovery Program

We just wanted to say thank you to all the contractors and homeowners who chose to use our Building Material Recovery (BMR) Program in 2014. Demand for our service is growing steadily, so for those of you making plans to remodel in 2015, make sure you plan ahead so that we can help you get ready for your new space.

before & after  Here are some helpful tips

  1. Call our BMR program early. When you first decide to remodel, make the call. A representative will come out to see what material can be salvaged and provide you with a free estimate.
  2. Find your contractor. Tell them you plan to have Habitat come in to salvage items prior to the remodel. We are happy to work with your contractor on timing and logistics.
  3. Set a date. Try to give at least two weeks notice before the start date of your project. Last June, we were scheduling four weeks out! May through July, September and October are our busiest months.
  4. Shop our ReStore. Don't miss out on some treasures! We can save you money on the essentials, too. Visit our three ReStores to find that perfect addition to your home. 

Our BMR program is fully licensed, bonded and insured in Oregon and Washington. Visit our webpage for more information or contact Stan Seals, our BMR Manager, to schedule a project review today at 971.303.7575 or at stan@pdxrestore.org.



We get some really nice furniture from our generous donors. Don't forget to shop with us when redecorating. Know a student who needs affordable items for an apartment or dorm? Send them our way - and tell them we often post new arrivals on our Facebook page.

Meet Volunteer Jimmy Jones

Pam and Jimmy


Jimmy Jones has been volunteering at the Clark County Habitat Store since January 2012, logging nearly 600 volunteer hours! He has worked alongside our staff, gaining experience and skills in a variety of tasks.


It's safe to say that Jimmy's experience at the store wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for the hard work and dedication that Pam Israel commits to his success. Pam and Jimmy have gotten very close and his work day wouldn't be complete without giving Pam a hug and saying, "I love you" before going home. 


The store staff creates a safe and friendly working environment where Jimmy and all the other volunteers can thrive while increasing the store's efficiency and success. This was apparent when Jimmy was found training another volunteer on how to clean toilets, something he had never been taught and hadn't been asked to do. Jimmy always works hard on the tasks given him, but the real work he accomplishes takes place in the hearts and attitudes of those around him.


Thanks to all of the Clark County staff for always going the extra mile to create a nurturing, safe and empowering environment!
