As you may, or may not know-yet, Habitat for Humanity of Waukesha County has been working on getting a ReStore opened once again. We are so close...but there are still so many things to do! '
At this time, we are in desperate need of people who would be able to pick up items on an occasional basis. This could be men, women or get your teenagers to help out and make this a family service project.
If you know of anyone who may be able to help out, please call the office at 262-309-6025. We would like to have several people or teams we can count on to do pickups so the burden does not fall on only a few people. Thank you for your consideration.
If you are interested in helping out in the ReStore, please email the Volunteer Coordinator, Ann Marie Franck, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
