Mission Statement

Our Mission and History

ReStore Resale Outlets help to fund Habitat for Humanity International a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian housing ministry. Together, through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, we have built or rehabilitated more than 350,000 houses, providing shelter for more than 1.75 million people in nearly 90 countries around the world.

Description

While every ReStore is a little different, most focus on home improvement goods like furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances.

ReStores accept donated goods which are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. The proceeds help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of Habitat homes within their communities.

Promoting reuse and recycling

ReStores provide an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream while providing funding for Habitat's community improvement work.

Would you recommend Camden County Habitat For Humanity ReStore?

by Ashley W. from NJ (July 17, 2013)
I volunteered here for 4 months during the Spring/Summer of 2012, and was sexually harassed by one of the men on management staff. I also witnessed other women being harassed, and after I spoke up at least 5 other women did as well. The man was reprimanded, and then suspended for no more than 2 weeks when other people confirmed his actions. The man remained on staff and rubbed it in many of the women's faces by saying that he was 'untouchable' and could 'do whatever he wanted'. The ReStore Manager made it clear that he supported this man, and demanded that I no longer speak to anybody that I worked with regarding this matter (that he 'knew what I was up to' & did not appreciate me 'starting trouble') - all of this was said to me while the store manager locked me in his office. At his point, I informed him that I would no longer be volunteering with this organization. The man was still employed there as of Spring 2013.
