NantucketbreezesThanks for joining us on the adventures of the Roadrunner Chronicles!
Pam and I looked forward to our stint at the ReStore of Fort Walton Beach. We stopped by a few days ago, introduced ourselves and asked if we could volunteer. We asked if they needed help on Saturday and they told us to be there at 9:00 AM.
Inside, it looks like a furniture store/warehouse type of arrangement.
Many of the materials are donated to ReStore. Often the same material can be found at Home Depot or Furniture or thrift stores. The merchandise in the ReStore is priced to move~they want to sell this stuff and it really is a win-win. People who want a bargain can get what they need, the ReStore can make some funds to defray operating costs and generate capitol for construction materials for new homes.
On Saturday, our job was to paint the shelving that had been donated. The shelving was the heavy duty home depot like shelving and we spent our day covering them in green. A different group of volunteers had started the previous week painting both blue and green on the shelves. We were able to finish up for them.
Have you been to a ReStore? You might want to check it out next time you get a chance. There may be one near you...just Google "Restore" along with "your town".
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
