Habitat holds evening double dedication for Jocelyn and Millwater families in St. Pete.

Monday, December 16, 2013

A rare evening Habitat for Humanity home dedication for two low-income St. Petersburg families who will receive the keys to their new homes. The dedication, which takes place in the driveway of the homes, will be lit by luminaries and include holiday music. The homes are among the five Habitat houses to be built on a single block of 35th Avenue N.

Claudison and Sophia Jocelyn, their two daughters and niece, and Heather Millwater and her son, will receive the keys to their new home. Both homes were sponsored by Crown Automotive Group. 113 Crown employees spent 803 hours volunteering on the build sites helping to build both homes. Many thanks to Crown Automotive Group and their staff volunteers!

ReStore has holiday items at great prices for bargain hunters!

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

There's a forest of Christmas trees currently in our ReStore lobby waiting for a good home!

All are in decent shape and several are prewired with lights. Two towering trees -- a 12 footer and a 10 footer -- are especially great deals and they, too, are prewired with lights!

We've also received a good selection of holiday themed decorations and knicknacks -- all at rock bottom prices!

So stop by and check us out first before you spend big bucks on a new tree or decorations. You'll save money and feel good knowing your purchase goes to our Habitat for Humanity building program!

Be sure to "Like" us on Facebook to be the first to know when we get in cool stuff, big shipments and more!  More info on the Habitat ReStore.

Thank you for shopping at our ReStore!
