As West Virginians around the state clean up after last month’s historic flooding, Huntington WV Area Habitat for Humanity teamed up with Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Ohio Valley and Mon County Habitat for Humanity in raising funds to aid in the relief and rebuilding efforts of their fellow Habitat affiliate in White Sulphur Springs, Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity.
On Friday, July 1, all three affiliates donated 50 percent of the day’s proceeds from ReStore sales to Almost Heaven HFH, amounting in a $3,050 donation.
The administrative offices and ReStore located in White Sulphur Springs were a total loss after record rainfall last week prompted flooding throughout the state. Almost Heaven HFH’s offices are being temporarily relocated to Fairlea, but it will be weeks of clean-up and rebuilding before the ReStore can be reopened. The ReStore is a discount outlet selling new and used building materials and home improvement products to the general public. The proceeds of all sales go directly to building more homes for those in need of affordable, safe and decent housing.
“We are pleased to share half of our sales from Friday, July 1 in order for the folks at Almost Heave Habitat for Humanity to gain their footing again,” Alvin Phillips, executive director of HFH of the Mid-Ohio Valley, said. “They have been so effective in helping families in their service area, including Greenbrier County, and this is one way that we can help them rebuild.”
