Know your nonprofit: ReStore your habitat

Nevada County Habitat for Humanity is best known for its mission of helping families attain home ownership by combining low-cost and donated materials with volunteer labor and the sweat of the future homeowners.

The nonprofit also offers discounted building materials to all at the ReStore, a thrift store for surplus and gently used construction goods.

Hot items right now are windows, doors, wood stoves, heaters and “some nice cabinets,” store manager Lynn Rogers said Saturday. “We also have tools, paint and painting supplies.”

Other products at the store include new plumbing fixtures, glass light fixtures, stained glass entry doors and a historic Wedgewood kitchen range. The inventory changes daily, so call if you’re looking for something specific.

Proceeds provide long-term, sustainable revenue for the local Habitat for Humanity, which is planning its next project: A 16-residence neighborhood on Joyce Drive in Grass Valley.

Habitat’s mission also includes providing building materials to homeowners at a reasonable price, enabling them to repair and maintain their homes.

The store also helps to create a sustainable environment by providing an outlet for reusable building materials otherwise destined for the county transfer station, according to the group’s website.

Material donations may be delivered to the ReStore during regular business hours or by appointment. Pick-up service also is available.
