By donating new or gently used building materials, furniture, and appliances, you can help improve our community. When you donate items to a ReStore, you may be eligible to receive a tax receipt for the value of the item(s).
Revenue generated from the sale of products at the ReStore covers operational expenses of HFHSSMA. Any funds over and above operational expenses are put towards our mission of building affordable housing in Sault Ste. Marie and area. That means every dollar raised goes directly into building homes and strengthening communities.
Whether you buy or donate materials, you are helping to reduce the number of usable building materials being deposited into a landfill. For every $1 of product sold at a ReStore, approximately 1.3lbs of waste is diverted from local landfills
Our mission is to build homes in partnership with hardworking, low-income families in Sault Ste Marie. We build social capital through skill development, networking, and mentoring opportunities.
