The Mid-County Habitat for Humanity will sponsor a day for residents to contribute many different used, but in good shape items, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Dart Field in Hartfield, just outside Mayville.
ReStore from Buffalo will be present to accept new and gently used home furnishings which will later be sold at affordable prices, with that money to be used for future Habitat projects.
A community outreach event, a ReStore truck will be on the site hosted by the Mayville area Habitat members. Residents of the surrounding community will be able to make donations of quality, usable home furnishings, as well as home improvement and building supplies.
Although ReStore is a Buffalo organization that is a retail outlet where acceptable items are sold, all donated goods are tax deductible, responsible recycling of still-usable goods is promoted and donors give back to the Habitat for Humanity mission without having to lift a hammer or write a check.
There are items that will be accepted and some not accepted. Saturday's drive will be looking for quality as the main description of all donated materials. Potential donors are asked to evaluate their items and distinguish between those that are quality and usable as opposed to those that might be relegated to the "curb," that is, trash.
Examples of those accepted include new or less than 10-year-old appliances, bath tubs, cabinets for kitchen and bathroom, interior or exterior doors, furniture, sinks, toilets and home decor. An example of those not accepted includes clothing, mattresses and box springs and scrap lumber. There may be exceptions in both denying and accepting donations.
Dart Field is located on 6167 county Road 308 and Plank Road in Hartfield. For more information, call Mike Ricketts at 753-7831.
