Habitat For Humanity Of Dalton-Whitfield And Murray ReStore Relocating

Friday, September 14, 2018

Beginning this fall, Habitat for Humanity of Dalton-Whitfield & Murray will have a new space for their ReStore and offices.

Habitat for Humanity is a Christian based non-profit organization that "envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live."  Within the past year, Habitat has partnered with United Way to add a new program that helps assist homeowners with exterior repairs, and has also hired new staff members that have contributed to the affiliates growth.

Habitat for Humanity relies on individuals and businesses for monetary donations and proceeds from The Habitat for Humanity ReStore to fund their builds. Individuals and companies can donate furniture, building supplies and appliances to the ReStore. The items are then sold back to the public at a fraction of the retail price. 

The new Habitat ReStore location will provide volunteers and staff with better working conditions, while also providing customers an exceptional buying experience, officials said. 

"Habitat for Humanity of Dalton-Whitfield & Murray does not want the financial commitment to relocating to distract them from their mission of building and rehabbing homes for low-income families in our community. Habitat currently has two builds in progress, as well as repair projects that remain the primary financial focus. At this time, Habitat is asking for financial donations to offset costs incurred from the move. Your financial donation will contribute to the following: a new or used hyster, new doors, new locks, processing carts, shelving fixtures, a security system, chairs and tables, a good condition vacuum, an electrician to update current light fixtures to LED compatible, LED lights and paint," officials said.

If you are interested in sponsoring an item on this list, call Habitat at 706-272-3336 Ext. 1.  If you would like to make a one-time gift or an on-going tax-deductible contribution to Habitat, you can do so on their website at www.habitatdwm.org or send a check to P.O. Box 2477. This would enable Habitat to bridge the time needed to Relocate, Reorganize, and Re-energize without affecting their operation or mission.
