Habitat for Humanity reopens ReStore in ConroeHabitat for Humanity reopens ReStore in Conroehttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=123352016-03-02T06:00:00Z2016-03-02T17:00:00Z

​​​CONROE - Montgomery County’s Habitat for Humanity ReStore at Woodforest Center is bigger than ever.

The home-improvement resale shop relocated from its 5,000-sf facility on Seventh St. in Conroe to its new 20,000-sf Woodforest Center facility at 9407 Texas 242.

The ReStore accepts new and gently used donations, including furniture, appliances, lighting, tools, flooring, garden, exercise, plumbing, renovation materials and more. It also provides a large-item pick-up service for donations during business hours.

The proceeds from the donated items that are sold in the store go toward building homes in Montgomery County.

For 25 years, the organization has locally helped build low-income housing for qualified families who contribute “sweat equity.”

The idea is to give partner families who have annual household earnings between $19,200 and $43,000 and meet eligibility requirements a “hand up, not a handout”.

The families must commit to work 350 volunteer hours for the organization and complete those hours before moving into their Habitat home.

Montgomery County Habitat for Humanity has completed 95 simple, energy-efficient and affordable homes since 1989.

In 2008, it broke ground on the its first Habitat neighborhood, Cedar Creek, where 35 of 90 planned homes have since been completed.
