Back-To-School Event at the ReStore
Come Join Us At Our Habitat Ogden ReStore For A Back-To-School Celebration.
Ogden, UT (August 6th, 2018) — The Habitat Ogden ReStore plans on having a Back-To-School event on August 17th from 10 AM to 2 PM. Catherine Tobey, Faith Relations Chair and future Board President, decided to bring basketball hoops and inflatable interactions for all ages to play friendly competitions. This event will be free for individuals and families alike.
The Ogden ReStore will have purple tiles for those to decorate for $5. These purple tiles are then put up on the inside of the store, plastered to the pillars. These purple tiles are decorated to show support for the local university, Weber State, and the Ogden ReStore. The ReStore managers have been in the process of having the pillars decorated in the purple tiles for over a year and continue the process until every pillar has been filled. Participants are encouraged to write meaningful and positive sayings or decorations.
While supplies last, children can receive a school supply item with a donation or purchase of $5 or more to the Ogden ReStore. From the help of local businesses and individuals, many backpacks and school supplies were donated for this particular event. These businesses and individuals include:
For the week of the event, starting on August 14th thru August 18th, college students and other high school students will receive a 20% off discount when they show their ID to cashiers. Students can purchase furniture and other home improvement items for their apartments, dorms, and living spaces.
Proceeds from this event are going towards the Guzman family, a single mother and her six children. Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties plan to build a Habitat Home for this partner family so that they may have a decent place to live. To read more about the Guzman family and why they were selected as the next partner family, you can visit habitatwd.org/blog.
The Ogden ReStore expects over 50 children to come to this event to play games, decorate, and to receive school supplies.
“It is our hope that we can help neighboring students, as well as our own Habitat partner family, be prepared for the new school year,” Maria Rague stated. “We want to make this a fun environment and to bring the community together.”
