Habitat for Humanity ReStoring hope for those in need

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Oneida County Habitat for Humanity held its grand opening for "ReStore," it's first physical store front, Wednesday.

The new store's inventory is comprised of donated new and gently used items from hardware to kitchen appliances, and even furniture.

Habitat for Humanity has rehabilitated 20 homes throughout Oneida County since it's inception.

The founders of the organization, Joyce and Dave Wilbur, had the honor of cutting the ribbon to officially launch ReStore.

They hope the project will help further their mission.

"Hopefully they'll come here and look before they go buy furniture elsewhere," Joyce said. "Nothing against our furniture dealers in the area, but there's some wonderful buys down here, then that money will be used to get the materials and things in order to do another home for another needy family."

If you would like to donate unwanted items to the cause, visit ReStore at 216 Seward Avenue in Utica.

Any donation will help to improve the lives of families in our community through Habitat's mission.
