Join us October 27th from 10 AM to 6 PM

Ogden, UT (October 12th, 2018) — The Habitat Ogden ReStore has been operating since 2016. They are celebrating their 2nd Anniversary on October 27th from 10 AM to 6 PM. There will be fun all day with different activities. There will be snacks and games from 12 PM to 2 PM. The first 25 people to walk through the doors that morning will receive a prize, generously donated by the local affiliate (HFHWD), CrewTracks, and HomeTown Values.

The Ogden ReStore is independently-owned and operated by nonprofit Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties (HFHWD). It is their home improvement thrift store and donation center located at 3111 Wall Avenue Ogden UT 84401. HFHWD and its ReStore strives to create “a world where everyone has a decent place to live”.

The Ogden ReStore is a nonprofit where anyone in the community can donate, shop, and volunteer. They have a donation center on the South side of the building where community members can donate items from lumber, building materials, furniture, lighting, plumbing, and so much more. The Ogden ReStore also offers free pick-up services for those who reside in Weber and Davis Counties. Donors receive a tax-deduction receipt for all items accepted at the ReStore.

Ogden ReStore Anniversary

The nonprofit thrift store accepts new and gently-used items that are in good and working condition. These donated new and gently-used items are sold at a fraction of the original price. Proceeds from these items go towards Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties and its home build and home repairs for families in need.

Customers and community members can purchase items at the ReStore Tuesday thru Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM. Every purchase makes a difference at this nonprofit thrift store. Currently, HFHWD and its ReStore are raising funds for the Guzman family, a single mother and her six children. To read more about their story, you can go to habitatwd.org/blog. In addition to this, they are raising funds for future Habitat partner families, the Rodriguez, the Norager, and the Hadfield-Carey family as well as home repairs needed by families in Weber and Davis Counties. The proceeds from the ReStore stay local to help low-income families.

Volunteers can help alongside the managers. Those needing community service or looking to be involved with philanthropic activities can help ReStore managers and staff with moving and reorganizing the thrift store and merchandise, cleaning the store front, helping with donation pick-ups and drop-offs, other DIY projects, and so much more. In 2017, the Habitat ReStore had over 2,400 volunteers and over 7,000 volunteer hours. Volunteers are greatly appreciated.

The ReStore has been a great contribution to the community, providing resources and materials needed by contractors, builders, DIYers, homeowners and renters, and so much more. From their grand opening to July 2018, they surpassed diverting one million pounds from the local landfills. As more and more people realize that the ReStore is in Ogden and is a place to donate home improvement items, the more good and gently-used items are diverted from the landfill. The ReStore prides itself for being eco-friendly in Weber and Davis Counties.

Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties plans on striving for a community where everyone has a decent place to live. They provide the Ogden ReStore as a resource for those needing tools and materials, as well as having a resource to provide funds for their selected Habitat partner families. The goal in the future is to open a second ReStore in Davis, providing a secondary source and a closer resource to those living in Davis Counties.

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.”

Ogden ReStore Kicks Off Declutter Drive

Declutter your garage and home in celebration of Earth Day!

Ogden, UT (March 21, 2018) — In celebration of Earth Day, the Habitat Ogden ReStore is kicking off their Declutter Drive all month long in April. Spring is coming, which also means that Spring cleaning is essential in most homes. The Declutter Drive is to challenge residents to donate items to the ReStore rather than throwing them into the dump.

In celebration of Earth Day (April 22nd), the Declutter Drive will hopefully bring awareness to residents in Weber and Davis Counties about the nonprofit ReStore. Home improvement Items can be donated to a nonprofit thrift store rather than putting them in the landfill. The Habitat Ogden ReStore offers a free pick-up service for residents in Weber and Davis Counties. This can be helpful for those who have large items, including furniture, appliances, lumber, and so much more. A donation receipt will be given for IRS tax-deductible purposes. Drop-off donations are acceptable from Tuesday thru Saturdays from 10 AM to 5:30 PM.

Ogden ReStore Declutter DriveThe Habitat ReStore is a nonprofit home improvement thrift store and donation center. It is operated and affiliated with the local Habitat for Humanity of Weber and Davis Counties (HabitatWD). The goal is to keep good and working home improvement items out of the landfill. The donated items are sold at a fraction of the cost to the general public. Proceeds from sales go back towards HabitatWD. The funds are used for building and repairing homes for local low-income families in need. The Ogden ReStore is located at 3111 Wall Avenue Ogden UT 84401. Operating hours are Tuesday thru Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM.

For the year 2017, it was calculated that the local Habitat Ogden ReStore diverted over 303 tons of items from the landfill. This is the equivalent to the weight of 30 box trucks.

Items that can be donated include appliances, artwork, building materials and lumber, cabinets, 2013 or newer dishwashers, doors, electrical items, new flooring, furniture, hardware, LED TVs, lighting, new paint, plumbing, tools, and windows. For more information, please visit the site.

Anyone can shop. Anyone can donate. And anyone can volunteer at the local Ogden ReStore. The Declutter Drive will begin April 1st and end on April 30th. You can schedule your free pick-up now or drop-off your unwanted home improvement items today.
