The Habitat ReStore of Southwest Montana is integral to the mission of Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Montana. The store helps fund our affiliate, keeps usable goods out of the landfill, and allows community members to repair or renovate their homes at a reduced cost. This means that the store benefits the community at-large, the environment, and individual community members. Hundreds of community members already feel the impact of the ReStore. Our goal is to continue to grow the reach of the store so everyone has access to these benefits.
Impact of the Restore
The process by which the ReStore funds Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Montana is pretty simple. All of the products sold in the store are donated by community members and businesses. That means that we are able to price those goods at about 50% of retail cost, or less depending on condition. All of the revenue from the ReStore goes directly to Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Montana to contribute towards building more affordable homes in our community.
Many of the goods that are donated to the ReStore may have otherwise ended up in the landfill. Helping to reduce the waste of usable goods is a major bonus to any donated goods store, and an attribute that Habitat is very proud of. Many people cannot afford the ever rising costs of building materials. They depend on the donated goods in the ReStore for access to these kinds of products. Helping other members of the community repair or upgrade their homes at a drastically reduced cost is the most important reason that we want people to support the ReStore. Just like homes, building materials need to be affordable as well. We believe that everyone deserves a place to call home that they are proud of and feel safe in. The ReStore is turning that belief into a reality.
