By Christina B. Farnsworth ReStore is Habitat for Humanity's home improvement store stocked with donations that would have clogged landfills. Money raised from selling these donated and recycled building materials at 50 percent to 90 percent less than retail, helps fund more homes.
In Detroit, the Masco Foundation partnered with ReStore to build two new Habitat homes. The Detroit ReStore has raised more than $60,000 since its November 2000 opening. Masco matched those funds, donating $30,000 for each home.
