ReStories

May 2, 2019 -- We're excited to announce the winner of the $250 gift card is Dave Jackson! Congratulations, Dave!

Caleb White is a man with a mission.

 

How do any two people find their way to each other? Sometimes it is by design - wistful yearnings on a dating app-, by conspiratorial plottings sof family or friends, an unintentional bump in a crowd, or - as in this case - it could be just serendipity.

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.  

DIYers and paint contractors have been stocking up on Visions Paints. Who can blame them? Not only has Visions Recycling been re-manufacturing paint since 2001, but the shades are also pretty spectacular.

They own the largest children's resale store in the Pacific NW, and when they recently upgraded their location, Dawn and Misty swung by the Washington County ReStore to donate extra cash wraps and clothing racks. 

 Why The ReStore?

Julie Carter believes in fate.

Could it have led her to The ReStore?

In the back room of the Clark County Habitat Store, Chuck Johnson and a team of volunteers resuscitate neglected, sometimes crusty, power tools and equipment and make them hum again.

Volunteering is something Chuck first learned to love as a young boy.

Family is what drives Josh LaVille, but the cogs in his head are powered by art, music and creativity.

The trials in Kelly Anderson’s life have only served to make her stronger.

Shadanny Lagunas, Jenny Hoang, Sead Mohammed and Daniel Dynes are four of the more than 30 high school students who worked at ReStores in Portland, Beaverton and Gresham through SummerWorks, a program partially funded by the US Department of Labor. The program teaches students job and career prep
