Habitat ReStore opening in Newtownards.

 

 

Dear supporter,

Habitat ReStore is opening soon in Newtownards, and we want to let you and the members of XXXX know this exciting news and ask you to help us recruit some volunteers! We need dedicated individuals to give their time, a morning or afternoon each week, to help make it successful!

Habitat ReStore is the low-cost DIY store that builds hope and homes, selling donated new and used building supplies and home improvement materials. We enable local families to improve their homes for less, we provide training opportunities for vulnerable groups and divert tons of reusable material from landfill.

We believe that everybody has something to give and something to gain from building strong community so whether you, or someone you know, would be interested in being part of the team who will help thousands of local people access low cost home improvement materials we would love to hear from you!

We would love to encourage anyone in your church who would be interested in volunteering to come along to our Volunteer Information Session on Tuesday 19th June from 11am-12pm in our Habitat ReStore, 22 Portaferry Road, Newtownards!

We would appreciate if you could include this in your announcements and/or church social media.

We need people of all ages and backgrounds at ReStore. There’s a role for everyone, from customer service to helping collect donations in the lorry. Apply on our website today or contact Clare for more information.

Read about some of the volunteers who give up time in Lisburn below:

Raymond’s Story

“The charity, the team and the staff are amazing, like one big family. I’ve grown so much since I’ve been here, I’ve really come out of my shell.

Overcoming my depression has been a long journey, but ReStore has directed me down the right path.” Read more.

Robert’s Story

“I’ve always been interested in the “Theology of the Hammer”, the approach for helping those in desperate need by Millard Fuller, Habitat’s founder. That is what is behind all that I do.”

“Habitat enables me to serve God and to put my faith into action.”  Read more.

Can’t commit longer term but would help us get ReStore ready for opening?

Our store on Portaferry Road, Newtownards will be opening in early July, so we are also looking for volunteers to grab a paintbrush and help us get the store ready for opening!
