HOLDERNESS — Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity is hosting a special Grand Opening Celebration at its new ReStore on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The new ReStore is located at 1116 U.S. Rte. 3 in Holderness, at the junction of Rte. 175, next to the Veggie Art Girl.
The public is invited to stop by at any time during the day to help Pemi-Valley Habitat Celebrate. Art Harriman will perform on the deck from 11 to 12. The kids can enjoy face painting by Stacey of the Veggie Art Girl and more. Come and enjoy pasta, pizza and salad from Village Pizza and Grill of Ashland from 11-1. The Common Man will provide their famous cookies and brownies. A blessing by Pastor Scott Mitchell will be held at noon.
Door prizes will be raffled off each and every hour. And, everyone who attends will receive a free Habitat for Humanity Cookie Mold.
The ReStore is Pemi-Valley Habitat's biggest fund raising source. The ReStore accepts donations of building materials, appliances and more and resells them to the general public at reduced prices. This repurposing of good items not only helps Pemi-Valley Habitat build homes for deserving families, but also helps keep materials out of the landfills, helping our environment. The ReStore originally opened in Ashland about four years ago, but because of its popularity, quickly outgrew that space. The new ReStore has twice the space as the previous location. Donations arrive on a daily basis so items available for purchase are always changing.
The ReStore is open Wednesday through Friday, 9-4; Saturday, 9-3 and Sunday (through Columbus Day), 12-3.
Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity has built 27 homes for needy and deserving families in the Plymouth area. The 27th home for the Gibbs family on Hedstrom way in Bristol was completed in April. This home was the first in an historic four-home subdivision, the largest project ever for Pemi-Valley Habitat.
