Looking for volunteers!

In November our Salvage Service team began deconstructing parts of the building at NE 181st & NE Glisan we're transforming into the Gresham ReStore. Now we're looking for volunteers-individuals and groups- to help paint and/or set up racks and shelving at the new store. 

Come roll up your sleeves and be a part of the next adventure. You can register online for specific times. We could sure use your help!

He's an artist, musician, songwriter, essayist. But how does Seth Bowersox describe himself?

"Still confused after all these years," he says. He's not joking, but don't be alarmed. Seth, Washington County ReStore's new receiving supervisor, finds comfort in confusion. You never know what's coming your way, so it really keeps you on your toes!
Over the past year, Western Pacific 
donated over 250,000 linear feet of interior trim to The ReStore. Last month we awarded Jeff Johnson, WestPac president and CEO, with an appreciation plaque for their outstanding continued support.
Jeff not only supports Habitat and its mission through his position at WestPac, but he is also invested personally, volunteering annually at Habitat home building sites.
You've done it again, WestPac!

We're floored by Emerson Hardwoods!  They recently donated over 8,000 sf of gorgeous hardwood flooring. This amazing donation of pre-finished and unfinished solid wood hardwoods includes species like mahogany, maple, oak, cherry, hickory and even some exotic palm! Thank you, Emerson!
Refurbished: This 1940s maple desk got a complete makeover by a team of staff and volunteers at the Clark County Habitat for Humanity Store. With five fresh coats of classic turquoise paint, brand new carbon-colored hardware and a new surface crafted from hardwood flooring--she's out on the sales floor looking spectacular. Oh, and while you're there, you'll want to inspect the new DIY corner for great ideas you'll want to try for yourself.
