ReStories

Welcome back to ReStore!

ReStores in Portland, Beaverton and Vancouver are welcoming back donors and shoppers Thursdays through Mondays, 10am to 6pm, while the Gresham ReStore is open Thursday through Sunday, 10-6.

Ready for something altogether new? Now you can shop the Habitat for Humanity ReStore online. 

Over the course of this past year, the Beaverton ReStore had over 21,143 hours of volunteer service performed by our 658 volunteers! We have had many new volunteers start with us this year, including Ann, Craig, and Nat who have all completed over 100 hours.

It's a good thing that Warehouse Supervisor Amy Dobesh is a hands-on person. Many times her team at the Beaverton ReStore has processed over 100 donation drop offs in a single day. 

UPDATE: This silent auction has closed and the winning $200 bid was submitted by Dave Yak! Thanks, Dave, and all the other bidders for participating!

The iconic 1980s transmission shop is changing gears, shifting into something rather unexpected in the City of Vancouver.

Jan dug deep, turning the compost, and as it spilled over exposing  rich organic soil,  her young daughter Kate stood alert, pulling out the largest earthworms then just holding them in her hands.

Take a look at what John Lassen built from a weathered king-size Ethan Allen bed frame and a door!

John, who has 15 years of computer graphics experience, says he does all his projects in Photoshop, first photographing each piece, then reassembling it digitally.
