MADISON, NJ - How time flies in Randolph! It seems that it was just yesterday that the Morris Habitat for Humanity ReStore was first opened, and now it is celebrating its 6th anniversary. When the ReStore first opened, very few people knew what a Restore was. Six years later, revenues from this one store have helped to build 8 homes and have kept over 3,000 tons of waste out of our landfills.
The ReStore’s 6th Anniversary Celebration & Sales Event will be held from 10 am until 5 pm. This One Day Only Event is set for Saturday, May 4th. Those attending will save 25% off their ENTIRE purchase of furniture, appliances, décor, building materials and more! And they will also enjoy free hotdogs, popcorn, music, great raffles (including ReStore gift certificates ranging from $50-100) and much more!
With over 21,000 square feet of space, customers can enjoy great savings off normal retail costs while supporting Morris Habitat for Humanity. By selling donated building supplies, appliances and furniture (both new and gently used) money raised by the ReStore is used to finance the houses built with homeowner partners. Morris Habitat provides a hand-up rather than a hand-out to home ownership.
So, whether you are a regular customer or it is your first time, mark your calendar to join in on the family fun on Saturday, May 4, 2013.
Other plans for the day include pet adoption from 11th Hour Rescue (www.ehrdogs.org), a visit from Smokey the Bear, the Beats B Poppin kids bubble experience (www.beatsbpoppin.net), face painting, and more. For those needing help with getting purchases home, delivery services (at a small fee) will be offered by College Hunks Hauling.
For more information about the ReStore, the 6th Anniversary Event, or opportunities to volunteer, visit www.morrisrestore.org or call 973-366-3358.
