OUR TOWNS HABITAT FOR HUMANITY SALVAGE PROGRAM HELPS RECYCLING EFFORTS, KEEPS CONSTRUCTION COSTS DOWN
Jul 26, 2016

CORNELIUS, N.C. (July 26, 2016) – North Mecklenburg and Iredell County residents remodeling their kitchens and bathrooms can offset construction costs by using Our Towns Habitat’s salvage program, and support affordable housing at the same time. At no cost, professionals are available to carefully extract and remove cabinets, countertops, appliances, sinks, toilets and more.

In addition to the free service, participants will receive a tax deduction for all donations. The items donated are resold in one of the Our Towns Habitat For Humanity ReStore locations in Cornelius and Mooresville, with funds used to build affordable housing locally.

“At Our Towns Habitat we strive to build bigger and better communities,” said Jill Laney, director of ReStores for Our Towns Habitat for Humanity. “By offering our salvage program, we’re not only keeping harmful materials out of landfills but we’re also able to raise funds to assist families with new home construction or critical home repairs.”

Within Our Towns Habitat’s service area, more than 5,000 families currently live in substandard housing. New home construction is part of the solution to get families out of overcrowded and unsafe living conditions. In addition, critical home repairs have helped people in urgent need, uplifting lives and revitalizing neighborhoods.
