Spring is coming...I promise!

Spring is coming...I promise!

I promise, spring will be here! While we are wishing for sunnier days and warmer weather, now is the time to start spring cleaning your homes, garages and sheds. To make spring cleaning a breeze, we’re having our 2nd Annual Scrub Day: city-wide donation drive event on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at Habitat ReStore.

What is Scrub Day? If you didn’t participate last year, let me tell you a little about Scrub Day and how easy we make donating your items to ReStore. Scrub Day is a city-wide donation drive event where ReStore has a fleet of trucks (vs. one truck) that are scheduled from 9am – 4pm to come to your home for a free pick-up of your unwanted household and building materials. Or if you can’t get a pick-up scheduled, we have two convenient drop-off locations at Lowe’s Home Improvement (6101 Apples Way) or at our ReStore (4630 Y Street).

What items should you donate? Habitat ReStore takes in new and gently used home furnishings and building materials. If you are replacing your couch with a newer version; we’ll take it. Getting new appliances; we’ll take those, too. We take couches, chairs, electrical, doors, windows, toilets, sinks, refrigerators, washers, dryers, stoves, cabinets, grills, patio sets, bedroom sets, trim, and so on. You can find a full list on our website:

Why donate to ReStore: Everything you donate goes to a great cause: Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln. All the proceeds generated from sales of the donated items are used for the construction of new homes in Lancaster County. All your donated items are tax-deductible, and you’re keeping great items out of the landfill.

How to get involved in Scrub Day:
