The Store That Builds Homes
Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, located at 3822 N. Frisco Road in Sherman, receives construction materials, furniture, appliances, and some household items that have been donated by individuals and businesses. In turn, those items are sold to the public, and the profits support Habitat’s work in Grayson County. Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to build safe, decent, affordable housing in partnership with the families whom we serve.
Do you have new or gently used furniture, windows, doors, bathtubs, ceiling fans, lumber, hardware, tools, toilets, sinks, stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, etc. that you would be willing to donate? Call the ReStore at 903.647.0133 to drop off your items or ask for a free pick up at your home or office. The ReStore is open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 am – 6:00pm.
