Campaign raises funds for Habitat for Humanity

ReStore in Abbotsford part of nation-wide event

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Abbotsford is among locations across Canada taking part in a fundraiser being held by Swiffer.

Swiffer is donating $1 for every ReStore transaction from now until Oct. 31 and is also giving out a free Swiffer Duster with all purchases while supplies last.

Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores are home and building supply stores that accept and resell quality new and used building supplies, home furnishing, appliances and decor.

The locations accept donations of second-hand, overstocked and discontinued items, as well as salvageable building materials donated by manufacturers, stores, contractors and individuals.

Proceeds fund Habitat for Humanity operations and homebuilding projects in communities across the country.

The funds generated through this campaign will be used towards Habitat for Humanity Fraser Valley builds in Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission.

Once complete, the project will enable more than 20 families partnering with Habitat to access affordable homeownership.

The Abbotsford ReStore is located at 31877 South Fraser Way. Visit habitatufv.ca for store hours.
