There was food, there was music, and most importantly there was a room full of the best people on earth- our volunteers. We gathered on February 22nd, 2018 to thank our amazing volunteers for their tremendous efforts in 2017. Some of their most notable accomplishments include: not only physically moving our ReStore to its brand new location but also opening it with great fanfare. Between our "ReStore Rockstars" and the amazing support of our community, it's since been a continued success. Our Build Site "Thursday VIPs" along with our volunteer build groups made it possible to dedicate three homes! Outstanding!

In total, over 11, 252.5 hours were donated by over 372 individuals last year.
WOW!
We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating each one of them that were able to attend our event and missed those who could not be with us. If you would like to join our organization as a volunteer, please contact us!

*A huge shout out to our event sponsors: The Hungry Hero (Sherwood), Gil S Point Tires (Newberg), The Catholic Daughters (Newberg), Caravan Coffee (Newberg), Pulp & Circumstance (Newberg), Chapters Books (Newberg), Dos Mundos Taco Truck (Newberg), Countryside Church (Sherwood), It's All Arranged (Sherwood), Showcase of Flowers (Newberg), and Shannon Buckmaster - Mary Kay (Newberg).

A Place to Call Their Own...

With much excitement and after much anticipation, Dedication Day finally arrived. Maria and her daughter Marisol are now the proud owners of their new Habitat Home. They are pictured receiving the keys from Roy Powell, Construction Supervisor. We wish them a future full of love, laughter, and great memories. Congrats Maria & Marisol!
And the beat goes on...
 
There is no stopping these guys! Our Thursday VIPs did not let a little snow on the ground and cold, bitter winds keep them from working on our latest home project. They are pretty amazing. If you'd like to join them, contact us. We'd love to have you!
