Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley has partnered with Olde Towne Moving & Storage for the pickup of donated items for their ReStore. The moving and storage company, named Habitats Official Mover, has generously donated its services for picking up donated items and offers Habitat ReStore customers a discount on the delivery of large items purchased at the ReStore. The Habitat ReStore, located between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale in the Cattle Creek Center off of Highway 82, sells gently used furniture, appliances, building supplies and home dcor. In addition to the significant cost savings to the nonprofit, this partnership offers a considerable environmental benefit. After delivering a job for a paying customer, Olde Towne uses the return trip to pick up donations for Habitat, rather than sending out an empty truck. Habitat accepts donations of good, reusable furniture, appliances, building supplies and home dcor during business hours at the ReStore location. To schedule a donation pickup, contact LeAnna Atkinson at 963-8555 or e-mail restore@habitatroaringfork.org.
