Three years ago, the Portland Metro ReStore developed a plan to open two additional ReStore locations by 2011. The Clark County Habitat for Humanity Store opened in Vancouver, Washington in March 2009 and was an immediate success. Now, preparations are well underway to open the Washington County ReStore at 13475 SW Millikan Way in Beaverton this April. The combined proceeds from these three Portland Metro area ReStores represent an important source of funding to support Habitat’s home building efforts.
Alex Bertolucci, Washington County ReStore Manager, Colleen O’Toole, Washington County ReStore Volunteer Coordinator and Joe Connell, ReStore Director, are busy transforming the empty space into a well-designed, well-stocked ReStore. Among the first things they need are a box truck, a forklift and volunteers to help build-out the store. If you’d like to help with a donation or to volunteer, please contact Alex Bertolucci at 503.906.3823. Look for future progress updates on facebook and on the ReStore blog at pdxrestore.org/restories. We are thrilled to bring this ReStore to Washington County.
