WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Helping families in need find a new home. That’s the mission of the Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity’s “ReStore Project.”
Tuesday night, 22News got a look at the organizations new facility on East Main Street in Westfield. The operation will sell gently used furniture to those in need, and in turn, those profits will help build new homes for struggling residents.
According to Walter Tomala, the Board President of the Greater Springfield Habitat for Humanity, “This ReStore allows us to touch a lot more lives in the essence that maybe you can’t go out and work, because you can’t physically do that. But, you can come here, you can help stock shelves, you can help be a part of this amazing mission.”
After the first three years of business, the “ReStore Project” hopes to have enough money raised to build one new home every year for families in need.
ReStore opens in April of this year. Click Here for more information on the project.
