Habitat For Humanity Partners With Lowe's Home Improvement Stores To Host Annual Spring Clean Donation Drive

Thursday, March 20, 2014
It is officially the first day of spring and to most that means it is time to begin spring cleaning. As area residents begin to move, remodel and declutter their homes, garages, and apartments, officials from Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area are encouraging them to donate unwanted, gently used furniture, cabinetry, appliances, household items, tools, and building materials to the affiliate’s annual Spring Clean Donation Drive. 
 
Habitat’s Spring Clean Donation Drive will be held each Saturday between 10 a.
m.–2 p.m. during the month of April at the Lowe's Home Improvement Stores in the Hixson on Highway 153 and in Chattanooga on Gunbarrel Road. Habitat’s ReStore staff and volunteers will be stationed near the ReStore truck, which will be parked in the rear of the parking lots.

Items accepted in this year’s Spring Donation Drive include:
 
Working Appliances                          Cabinets                     
Furniture                                              Household Items       
Tools                                                    Garden Supplies
Outdoor Furniture                               Flooring/New Carpet                 
Full Containers of Paint                     Roofing
Lighting/Ceiling Fans/Lamps            Fences        
Hardware                                            Tile
Doors                                                   Windows
                                            
All items are tax deductible and should be clean and in good, working condition. And for those items that are too large and heavy to transport, schedule an appointment for Habitat’s ReStore Team to pick them up at no charge.
 
“We are tremendously grateful for Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores and the Chattanooga community for their continued support,” said Marty Mauldin, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga’s ReStore Operations manager. “All revenue generated from sales at our discounted home improvement store enables us to build more homes for working families in the Greater Chattanooga community. I encourage residents to not only donate items to the spring donation drive but also consider shopping at Chattanooga’s best kept secret, Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore”.

A Disturbing Trend At Exit 11 - And Response (5)

So, am I the first to notice a trend?   How many wrecks does exit 11 need before anyone asks "whats up with that?"  I have lost count of the wrecks that continue to happen, even after last year's awful loss of life (which I believe 51 percent of the blame should fall on the THP officer on duty).  The problem with this section of interstate are sight lines ...

Roy Exum: My Garden This July

I can never remember a day in July when my garden, my lawn, my dogwood tree, and my ferns are all wilting for lack of rain. Right now we are more than eight inches under our average rainfall for the first six months and, on this wonderful weekend, those who love firecrackers are urged to keep a pail of water in case a spark could cause a fire. On the other hand, every July 4 th ... (click for more)
