Waste not, want not: Habitat for Humanity ReStore helps homeowners save

Being a little buyer-savvy when it comes to home repairs doesn’t just benefit you, it also benefits the wider community when you’re doing it at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

The ReStore is essentially a thrift store operation that accepts donations of housewares, construction materials, appliances, furniture and more, then sells the items to the public at a significantly reduced cost. The funds raised through the program are used to finance the work of Habitat for Humanity throughout the community.

And Habitat for Humanity Capital Region has two ReStore locations up and running in Ingham County, 1941 Benjamin Drive in Lansing and 954 E. Grand River Ave. in Williamston.
