ReStore to hold ReStore Kitchen Expo

Thanks to the generous donation of The Taunton Press of their test kitchens and all submitted kitchen items, Housatonic Habitat ReStore is hosting the ReStore Kitchen Expo - featuring top-of-line kitchen items submitted to The Taunton Press by major home brands.  The ReStore Kitchen Expo will take place at Housatonic Habitat’s 10,000 square-foot-resale warehouse from Tuesday, February 23 to Saturday, February 27.

The Taunton Press is extremely proud to donate the contents of our test kitchens to support Housatonic Habitat for Humanity.  We know the importance of providing affordable housing and glad to play our part.  The Taunton Press and the Roman Family have donated to Housatonic Habitat for more than a decade.

According to Housatonic Habitat’s Executive Director, Fran Normann, “We are very appreciative of the very-kind donation from The Taunton Press of their test kitchens and kitchen items.  The Taunton Press and the Roman Family have been long-time supporters of Housatonic Habitat.  With this, ReStore Kitchen Expo will allow us to sell top-of-the-line kitchen items to support the mission of providing affordable housing in the Greater Danbury region.”

“Home is key.  Families are facing food insecurities that impact home life. We can help by fundraising for this important cause”, stated Normann.  With that, Housatonic Habitat is partnering with the Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare by donating 10% of total sales on all ReStore Kitchen Expo items.

“As food insecurity continues to increase in our state as a result of the pandemic, we are grateful for the continued support from our community. Thank you to Housatonic Habitat for finding a creative way to help us fight hunger in Connecticut,” said Jason Jakubowski, President, and CEO of Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare.

Our New ecommerce Site for Restore

H3ReStore.com is our online marketplace. When the pandemic temporarily closed our fully stocked ReStore we decided to break out of our walls by selling items on Instagram. It was a success! Our customers were happy, we gained new followers and we continued to fund our housing mission. When we reopened ReStore we decided to also expand into e-commerce by creating H3ReStore.com.

H3ReStore.com is managed by a small group of dedicated staff and volunteers who want to offer a pleasant online shopping experience for people who appreciate good value while doing good. All items we sell have been donated by individuals and businesses. We are proud to provide a sustainable shopping alternative for your home furnishings and home improvement needs.

Housatonic Habitat begins Ridgefield “house hunt”

Thirty years and 34 homes after its founding in 1991, Housatonic Habitat for Humanity is returning “home” to Ridgefield to change the life of a first-time homeowner.  The initiative is the partnership between Ridgefield’s Affordable Housing Committee and Housatonic Habitat for Humanity.

“We are proud that our local heritage means Ridgefield businesses, churches and individuals can build on the original local Habitat commitment begun by a group of Ridgefielders around a kitchen table decades ago,” said Ridgefield resident Kent Rohrer, who is Habitat’s Board president.  “The Habitat model places qualified local working families in homes they can afford.”  Called “Habitat Ridgefield Site Search ’21”, the initiative is on the hunt for donated or near-donated land, gifts, including homes to be renovated. {...}

Putting People into Homes Since 1991

Homeownership is more than the homes we build. Homeownership provides financial benefits that impact and contribute to the quality of life in greater Danbury. Throughout the region, affordable housing attracts families and individuals who will work in, invest in, and contribute to the economic and civic life of our communities.

Habitat has a solution to stimulating this economic vitality: Give people a chance to live in simple, decent homes they can afford – and sustain. We provide affordable homes built by volunteers with materials gifted by local businesses. We provide an interest-free mortgage for those working families who qualify.

Housatonic Habitat for Humanity has built more than two dozen homes in four towns in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties.
