Amy Dobesh: The story of things


Warehouse Supervisior Amy Dobesh has been on the job at the Beaverton ReStore for six months. She's a hands-on powerhouse who orchestrates the comings and goings of  donations that can peak at over 100 drop offs in a single day.


When asked, Amy says her favorite part of the job is hearing about the "story of things" brought to the ReStore, like the one about a vintage Singer sewing machine that carried the story of generations dating back to a textile factory in the early 1800s stowed away in a little wooden drawer. 

Salvage Service:  Schweppe Home
When the Schweppe family were planning a kitchen remodel they chose John Fazzolarri to do the work, and John...well, he chose the ReStore's Salvage Service team to do the deconstruction. 
Fazzolarri Construction had donated to ReStore before, but normally they did the harvesting themselves and then loaded it up and dropped it off at ReStore. Using Salvage Service saved them time. "The job site was completely clean and the client is happy to get a tax deducible receipt," John said. That morning, Steve Schweppe watched as his entire kitchen was carefully dismantled. "It was quick, and they seemed to operate quite effectively," he said. "I'm glad the cabinets and appliances can be reused instead of thrown away!"

'It's a win-win-win!'

                            -Alice Suszynski


"I love the ReStore, it's a win-win-win for everybody!" Alice Suszynski said during a recent ReStore shopping excursion where she picked up this terrific art deco light fixture for her latest home rehab project.

"It's a great place to bring things you don't need anymore, a great place to come when you need something and you'd like a good price on it, and then the third thing - and the most important - is the cause: helping people to have their own home, and getting the community involved in building the home. It's an amazing thing!"

Global Village Trip: El Salvador



Just months after celebrating her 10-year anniversary of working at Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Malia Tam Sing set out on her second Global Village Trip to El Salvador. Each day, Malia awoke before 6 a.m. and took in the warm, morning air, reflecting on the day’s activities to come. A hearty breakfast and coffee from the hotel owner’s plantation energized the Habitat crew for the 45-minute ride to their destination. Stepping off the bus, they walked along a dirt highway toward the small construction site. There was work to be done...

They say there’s no place like home for the holidays, and for Joan and her family that now has a new meaning. Joan, her granddaughter Katie, nephew Jason, and niece Shyera moved into their new home in Beaverton just in time for Christmas. This house means a lot to Joan, who spent her life constantly moving from place to place - attending 50 different schools throughout her childhood! She is thrilled to finally be able to offer her kids something she always longed for, but never had – stability and a clean, safe place to thrive. Joan’s home was the 8th completed by Willamette West Habitat in 2018.


Welcome home, Joan!
