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.

Roy Exum: Al Sharpton’s Wise Remarks

I’ll admit I paid little more than scant attention to the Monday funeral of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police bullets in Ferguson, Mo., after he allegedly was involved in strong-armed robbery. There are too many tawdry details and, in my way of thinking, there is nothing under God’s sun, absolutely nothing, that gives others the right to riot, burn ... (click for more)
