HFH ReStore: A Community Resource
The ReStore was opened in St. Helens a little more than four years ago. What started as a fundraiser for building affordable homes, has developed into so much more. If you have not visited the ReStore in St. Helens, you may want to check it out.
If you are experiencing a medical need, that requires crutches, walkers, chairs, we loan these out free to Columbia County residents. This is part of our way of saying "Thanks!" to the community.
When you donate to the ReStore, you keep many items out of the landfill. Sometimes perfectly good items are discarded at the transfer station. When donated to the ReStore, donors save money at the transfer station and receive a tax-deductible donation receipt. We also recycle paint and metal. This is both a service to the donor and a money maker for our programs.
Volunteering at the ReStore is an opportunity to develop a skill for future employment, receive a reference, meet new people, or do something meaningful for your community! The Restore works with a limited number of youth and adults with disabilities helping those individuals to gain skills and experience interacting with the public.
We are a supplier of plumbing and electrical parts, many of which are new. These supplies along with a wide selection of appliances, tools and building materials, provides the community with a low-cost source for those remodel projects that can get expensive.
Building stronger communities is part of our mission. When we focus on helping each other, we all win!
