Your stuff builds homes

Posted by Joy Harrington on Apr 5, 2024 2:08:04 PM

Have you ever wondered if your donations to Habitat ReStore are really making a difference? Well, wonder no more, because today we're diving into the incredible impact of your generosity, and how your stuff builds homes and protects the planet!  

Your donations play a pivotal role in waste reduction by giving items a second chance. By extending their lifespan, you're not just decluttering your space - you're significantly reducing waste sent to landfills. This means less environmental strain on our planet and more opportunities for these items to find new homes and purposes! 

In 2023, your donations to Habitat ReStores in Calgary and Medicine Hat contributed to 4,100 tons of waste being diverted from landfills. That is the equivalent of about 342 school buses!

Your donations (and purchases) directly contribute to conservation efforts, preserving valuable resources and reducing the carbon footprint associated with manufacturing and transporting new products. Every item you donate helps conserve materials and resources that would otherwise be used in producing new goods. 

But that's not all! Your support empowers our mission to build more affordable homes, as funds generated are used to fund local Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta affordable homeownership program

Since 1990, we have partnered with more than 350 families across Southern Alberta, impacting the lives of more than 1000 children.

Your stuff builds homes! Your support not only helps us continue to build more affordable homes for hard-working local families and their children but also plays a crucial role in reducing waste. It's all part of our shared commitment to creating a greener, more sustainable world for future generations.
