Habitat for Humanity launches fundraising campaign for new ReStore

By  | 

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An area Habitat for Humanity wants your help so its ReStore can move into a new home.

The La Crosse Area Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore sells new and used donated building materials and household items at a discounted rate.

The ReStore’s proceeds help habitat to build houses.

The ReStore opened in 2006, but needs more space.

Its current lease also ends in December.

Habitat for Humanity has started its five year capital campaign.

Habitat needs to raise $200,000 by the end of the month to help with a down payment on the old Decker building on Berlin Drive in La Crosse.

The organization is opening to raise $1 million to fund the sale of the building.

The old Decker building is near the La Crosse County Disposal Facility, and moving there would allow habitat to improve a partnership with them.

“The more that we can get from the community, the more we’re going to keep from going into the trash, but the other thing is the more that the ReStore makes, the more Habitat for Humanity can do out in the community,” said executive director Amanda Acklin.

You can donate by going to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in La Crosse at 434 3rd Street.

You can also donate online.
