FAIRFIELD — Solano-Napa Habitat for Humanity has launched a program designed to help both people remodeling their homes and the organization’s ReStore in Fairfield.
Habitat crews come to the home to remove items such as kitchen cabinets, appliances, sinks, tubs and toilets. It takes them to ReStore, where it sells them to benefit Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to build homes for the needy. The nonprofit calls the program “Deconstruction.”
“The items have to be in good condition, what we call ‘gently-used’,” said Roddy Feldman, Habitat’s Deconstruction coordinator, in a press release. “It is a triple win – the homeowner gets a tax write-off, less material ends up in our landfills, and Habitat uses the proceeds from the sale to support its mission of eliminating poverty housing in Solano and Napa counties.”
Homeowners or their contractors can find out more about the Deconstruction program by calling the Habitat office at 422-1948. ReStore is located at 104 Commerce Court and is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. It opened two years ago.
Habitat for Humanity this month completed and dedicated two homes on Acacia Street in Fairfield.
