Habitat for Humanity ReStore in New Kensington
Habitat for Humanity affiliates seek to eliminate poverty housing as it uses volunteer, community labor in partnership with selected families to build decent, affordable housing. One way HFH raises funds to carry out its mission is through its chain of ReStores.
Habitat ReStores sell overstocked, discontinued, new and used building materials and other household items donated by manufacturers, stores, contractors and individuals. ReStores also accept donations of other good-quality household items, except clothing. They reserve the right to refuse donations if they are not salvageable.
The Allegheny Valley HFH ReStore is located at 1170 Industrial Boulevard in New Kensington, just off the 9th Street Bridge. Hours of operation are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10am to 4pm, and Saturdays from 9am to 3pm. For more information, call 724-337-8347, or visit their website.
The Westmoreland County Blind Association offers secure and confidential document destruction services to businesses and individuals at a reasonable cost. Contact Tim Miller at 724-837-1250 or by email for more information on this affordable service.
