Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County (HFHPBC) is encouraging everyone to be prepared this hurricane season. All three of the Habitat ReStores will re-open on Saturday, May 9 and have essential and affordable items to purchase, such as construction and home renovation supplies, and hurricane shutters to protect your home.
The ReStores will be open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ReStore locations include the Rivera Beach ReStore at 7700 N. Military Trail, the Greenacres ReStore at 4639 Lake Worth Road and the Jupiter ReStore at 1635 N. Old Dixie Hwy.
“We are happy to reopen our Habitat ReStores for those looking to purchase construction materials to make their home safer this Hurricane season,” said Peter Gates, chief retail officer at Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. “Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County is committed to helping our community in a safe way. All of our staff are equipped with masks and gloves, and we have implemented a cleaning and sanitizing program into our regular store operations.”
Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County is also beginning to take calls for donation pickups beginning on Monday, May 11. To schedule a pickup, call (561) 253-2290. To learn more, visit www.habitatpbc.org/stores.
The retail outlets are a vital financial resource for Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. The ReStores exist to support the nonprofit’s mission of providing decent, affordable housing to low-income families. Proceeds generated from ReStore sales help to build new houses and provide urgent, critical repairs to older, owner-occupied homes in our community.
Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County, founded in 1986, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Each Habitat partner family is required to invest a minimum of 400 sweat equity hours of their own labor into the construction of homes before being eligible to purchase their home utilizing a 30-year, no-profit, no-interest loan. The affiliate’s service area extends from Hypoluxo Road in the south to the Martin County line in the north, and from Palm Beach to Lake Okeechobee.
