STATESVILLE, NC--Our Towns Habitat for Humanity plans to open a third Habitat ReStore in Statesville by the end of the year. The new location will be in a prime retail location, at 1893 E. Broad Street, in the Bi-Lo shopping center, next to Planet Fitness.

Habitat ReStores support affordable housing by reselling donated new and gently used items to the public, with all proceeds benefitting Our Towns Habitat’s homeownership and critical repair programs. Merchandise offered at the new Statesville location will include furniture, appliances, building materials, home décor and other home improvement supplies.

CORNELIUS, N.C. (Feb. 9, 2017) – Our Towns Habitat for Humanity is welcoming Patrice Reynolds to its leadership team as the new Director of Development.

Reynolds brings 30 years of nonprofit experience to the affiliate, working with both international agencies and small, local organizations. Her breadth of experience includes fundraising, board development, event planning, programming and volunteer coordination.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – July 7, 2016 – The Town of Mooresville has awarded $150,000 over three years to Our Towns Habitat for Humanity to perform critical housing repairs for eligible Mooresville residents.

“It’s extremely important that the Town of Mooresville maintain our existing affordable housing stock,” said Mooresville Senior Planner Tim Brown. “This is a tool we can use as a community to accomplish that.”

CORNELIUS, N.C. – July 26, 2016 – Our Towns Habitat for Humanity is welcoming Denise Copeland to its leadership team as the organization’s new director of operations.

While new to Our Towns’ staff, Copeland is certainly not new to the organization. She has been a volunteer since 2002, when she got involved through her then-employer and strong partner of Habitat for Humanity, Lowe’s Home Improvement.

“I became hooked for the cause and have remained an ever more active participant year after year,” Copeland said of her passion for Habitat.

CORNELIUS, N.C. – July 26, 2016 – North Mecklenburg and Iredell County residents remodeling their kitchens and bathrooms can offset construction costs by using Our Towns Habitat’s salvage program, and support affordable housing at the same time. At no cost, professionals are available to carefully extract and remove cabinets, countertops, appliances, sinks, toilets and more.

In addition to the free service, participants will receive a tax deduction for all donations. The items donated are resold in one of the Our Towns Habitat For Humanity ReStore locations in Cornelius and Mooresville, with funds used to build affordable housing locally.

Cornelius, N.C. – May 3, 2016 – To mark the start of the summer painting and home improvement season, Our Towns Habitat for Humanity is partnering with Valspar to build decent and affordable homes to strengthen communities through Valspar’s National Neighborhood Week, May 9-14.

Employees from Valspar’s Davidson facility are volunteering with Our Towns Habitat on May 10-11 and May 13, assisting two future Mooresville homeowners with shingle preparation and the installation of doors, windows, a metal roof and more.

CORNELIUS, N.C. (March 28, 2016) – On April 2, Our Towns Habitat for Humanity will welcome 30 Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers to 132 Burke Circle in Mooresville, North Carolina, to place the final touches on a new home for Mooresville resident Sabrina.

As a part of Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity’s nationwide initiative to build or repair 1,000 homes by the holidays, employee volunteers will assist Sabrina in preparing her new home for moving day by landscaping her front and back yard. Projects will include rolling out sod, planting flowers and trees and installing a mailbox.
