The Habitat for Humanity of Berks County ReStore has resumed residential pickups which were halted in March due to the CoronaVirus restrictions.
“We are glad to provide this service again to people who wish to donate their quality furniture and household goods and building supplies to the ReStore,” said General Manager, Mark Wallace. “The Habitat ReStore helps to fund the hopes and dreams of people who work towards homeownership in Berks County and we are truly thankful for our customers’ continued patronage and support.” All items donated are sold at the Habitat Berks ReStore located on Allentown Pike in Temple.
During the break, ReStore staff found a way to make donating even easier. People donating items to the ReStore can click on the link found on the organization’s website, www.habitatberks.org (Click on the ReStore tab) or Facebook page and upload photos of the items. The donor can then schedule their pick up date and time.
If an item is submitted that the store cannot accept, the software will help the donor find a place that will.
“This way, we can provide even greater service to our community,” explained Wallace, “We never want to turn away an item, and this system will help people find the appropriate place for their items to go.”
“Donating your items is a great way to support the important work of Habitat Berks,” said Executive Director Tim Daley. “When you donate to and shop at the ReStore, your contribution stays right here in this community.”

About Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity of Berks County (Habitat) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that believes all people deserve a decent life and the power to build their own futures. Habitat exists to create affordable homeownership opportunities for moderate-income families. Families who purchase Habitat for Humanity homes must contribute 200 hours of sweat equity. Habitat relies on volunteers and families contributing sweat equity for the unskilled labor needed to build the homes. Working in this way, they believe they provide families a hand up rather than a handout, while also providing a way for people to assist hard-working families in our community.
