Earth Day Repurposing Contest: April 27 We are jumping right into the green movement with our 6th annual


repurposing contest in honor of Earth Day! Contestants should submit art or functional items using recycled materials for a reimagined product. We are excited to see new and creative ideas from this year’s participants! Submissions are accepted until April 25th.



Repair Café— April 27 The Habitat for Humanity ReStore and the New River Valley Timebank are proud to announce the next Repair Café on Saturday, April 27. Community members can bring up to three items to be assessed by volunteer repairers. Available services will include furniture repair, knife and tool sharpening, plant repotting, sewing, and small electronic repair. This is one of our favorite events because it brings community members together to fix broken household items, making them use-ful again and eliminating potential waste. Don’t throw it away, bring it to Repair Café! Event runs from 9am-3pm at the ReStore.

Please Keep in Mind ReStore is the primary fund- raiser for building Habitat homes. By donating your gently used furniture, appliances, lighting, cabi- nets or construction materi- als, you help families in your community achieve their dream of homeownership.
