Habitat for Humanity ReStore
Retail With a Mission...
ReStore Elgin is a 20,000 sq. ft. building materials reuse center benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley. ReStore accepts donated new and gently used goods from retailers, manufacturers, distributors, contractors and homeowners. Building supplies are then sold, at greatly reduced prices, to the general public. The store's operation generates funds to support Habitat?s house building program in the northern Fox Valley area, while reducing the amount of material that would otherwise go to overflowing landfills.
At ReStore, we?re keeping stuff out of landfills, raising money to build homes, and making low-cost materials available to those who otherwise may not be able to afford them.
Keeping It Green...
It is estimated that 80,000 tons of construction waste were dumped into Kane County landfills in 2003. Much of it was reusable, and truly not waste, but was dumped for lack of a better outlet. Much of this construction waste can be reused by those wanting to make home improvements on a budget, which makes ReStore environmentally and economically friendly.
So donate, shop and volunteer, and help us build our community and preserve our environment.
