Habitat for Humanity of Orange County has two ReStore Discount Home Improvement Centers that sell new and used home improvement items as a way to raise money to build homes. What better way to recycle your good re-useable kitchen cabinets - you keep them out of the landfill, get a tax deduction, help Habitat build homes and help another family remodel their home and enjoy your kitchen. I donate all of my books too!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the joy of giving to a good cause and helping another family experience the joy or remodeling and owning their own home

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

That it focus on the local level and you can see the results

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff is experienced and very hard working - and the volunteers bring a mix of experience, skills and energy. They also learn skills to do remodeling at home and help build their resume.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Add another ReStore to be more self-sustaining, build more affordable housing in Orange County,CA and around the world
