Chattanooga Habitat For Humanity Affiliate Hosts Spring Donation Drive April 6-27

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Wednesday is the first day of Spring and to most people that means the start of spring cleaning.  As area residents begin to declutter and remodel their homes and apartments, officials from Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area are encouraging them to donate unwanted, gently-used household items and building materials to the affiliate’s sixth annual ReStore Donation Drive. 

Items can be dropped off at the ReStore at 1201 E. Main Street, Tuesday through Saturday, or at the Hixson and Chattanooga Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores on Saturdays, between 10 a.

m.–2 p.m., April 6-27. 

Items that will be accepted in this year’s Spring Donation Drive include:
Furniture                                                                        New Mattresses
Window Treatments                                                      Low Flow Toilets
Building Materials/Lumber                                             Working Appliances
Flooring/New Carpet                                                     Doors (only solid)
Cabinets                                                                        Paint/Wallpaper
Lighting                                                                          Windows
Hardware                                                                       Plumbing Supplies
Sinks/Faucets                                                               Tools
Outdoor Furniture                                                           
All items should be in good and working condition. And for those items that are too large and heavy to transport, Habitat’s ReStore Team can pick them up at no charge.
The person, contractor, or business that donates the most materials with the highest monetary value during the donation drive wins a $500 Lowes gift card along with other prizes.

A Thankful List

David Jeremiah said it best, that we have a tendency to concentrate on the things we don’t have rather than what God has already blessed us with.  Perhaps, he said, it is because there is not enough parchment available in this world to record all God’s bountiful blessings should we try to list them. This Thanksgiving let us gather our family close to us, whisper a prayer ... (click for more)

There are two good bills in both the Senate and the House of Representatives right now that are directly aimed at the sadistic villains who derive some sick pleasure out of torturing helpless Tennessee Walking Horses. They call it “soring,” where caustic materials are lathered into a horse’s forelegs and then wrapped in plastic so they’ll cook. Sometimes they use nails or screws ... (click for more)
