The Genesee County ReStore sells used and new building materials and home items at big savings; 50-90% off retail prices. The ReStore has a three-part mission:
- Provide families an opportunity to buy building materials that they may not otherwise be able to afford. This will help raise the standards for Genesee County housing.
- The ReStore raises funds by selling merchandise and, after expenses, gives all proceeds to Genesee County Habitat for Humanity® (GCHFH) to build more houses.
- By recycling goods that would have been sent to a landfill, the ReStore helps reduce waste and recycle materials in our community.
The ReStore in Genesee County saves around 300,000 pounds (150 tons!!) of material from going to the landfill annually.
