Doing their part to help fund Habitat for Humanity's local mission, ReStore sells new and gently used building materials and home-improvement supplies to homeowners looking to spiff up their abodes. But it's not just existing homes that benefit: proceeds from every sale are funneled to Habitat Kent, which builds homes for low-income families who need them. Over the past decade, they've raised more than $1 million for the organization, which is enough to build nine homes or one home that can clone additional homes. The donation-based inventory is constantly changing, but often includes electrical and plumbing supplies, lighting, tools, and upholstery.
