MANILA, PHILIPPINES — “ReStore”, Habitat for Humanity’s nonprofit home improvement donation center, opened its first ever facility in Asia on September 5, 2015 in Las Piñas City. The center is managed by Habitat for Humanity Philippines.
ReStore offers the general public new and slightly used furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances that are donated by individuals or groups to Habitat Philippines. The merchandise are sold at lower market values. The proceeds from ReStore help in the building of decent and affordable homes for less-fortunate Filipino families.
ReStore is a venue in which homemakers can find almost everything that they may need to make their house look more like a home. It also gives low-income families the opportunity to afford quality merchandise at a lower cost.
“We invite everyone to shop for new and slightly used low-priced home essentials, volunteer by sorting and cleaning the merchandise, help sell and talk to customers, and donate their extra furniture,” says Francis Macatulad, Head of Volunteer Programs and ReStore for Habitat Philippines.
Habitat affiliates from other countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have also established their own ReStores to raise additional funds. Habitat ReStore now has about 1,000 outlets all over the globe.
