Tools, paintbrushes, and lighting fixtures are deemed “building material” after proving to their superiors that they can handle additional responsibilities. Be a team player with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of donated building materials at the Green Bay ReStore.
The Green Bay ReStore proffers donated building materials for home improvement projects, with profits going toward the construction of Habitat for Humanity homes in the Brown County area. Volunteers accept donations of new and gently used building materials such as doors, lumber, tools, and princess phones for the purpose of recirculation. These items are then resold to the general public for a fraction of the cost, keeping valuable materials out of the mouths of insatiable local landfills while supporting the construction of homes for the financially disadvantaged. Although prices vary based on age and wear, home-improvement items such as sinks ($10+), hollow core doors ($5+) and tile sheets (12"x24"/$1.50 each) play well with children and charm adults, easily worming their way into the homes of compassionate purchasers. After supporting the store’s mission with today’s Groupon, take advantage of the plethora of volunteer opportunities to provide design inspiration for a groundbreaking sandcastle project.
