Housatonic Habitat for Humanity has recently launched a program for ongoing donations of household items to Make a Home Foundation (MAHF), a non-profit group that helps area veterans. The donation to MAHF in Waterbury is part of Housatonic Habitat’s expanded effort to reach out to veterans through local support groups.
“We filled one truck, and we plan to donate more goods in the months ahead,” said ReStore assistant manager Michelle Barney.
The ReStore, which sells refurbished, restored and gently-used household goods, will offer MAHF a range of serviceable items, including furniture, lighting, cabinets, and kitchen and bath products. “We’re very pleased to have this ongoing relationship with Make A Home, and we are exploring other ways to serve our veterans,” said Fran Normann, Executive Director of Housatonic Habitat for Humanity.
