BUYING NEW CABINETS?
DONATE THE OLD!


Upcycle your old cabinets by donating them to a Habitat For Humanity ReStore!

Where shopping, donating, and volunteering improves your home, community, and environment.
Their gently used home improvement stores are open to the public, and supported by our local communities.

– The owner of the house gets a tax write-off and the knowledge that they contribute to a wonderful non-profit.

– Habitat receives cash flow to help promote the awesome job they do constructing housing for needy people.

– The environment benefits by keeping products out of the land-fills which are put to good use in new and/or remodeled homes.

Visit www.Habitat.org/ReStores for a list of participating ReStores near you!

On May 10th we at Solid Wood Cabinets were lucky enough to host Greg Bradley, Tristan Keyser, and BJ Breish from Habitat for Humanities ReStore locations in Philadelphia, Burlington County and Bucks County respectively. The gentlemen were kind enough to present their story to our sales team and explain our joint efforts, as well as those of Habitat for Humanity and the ReStore program to our employees. In turn, Solid Wood Cabinets was happy to present them with our donation toward their mission and invite them to tour our facility.

We at Solid Wood Cabinets look forward to a long lasting partnership with Habitat for Humanity and
future joint endeavors that will benefit both the local population and those efforts nation wide.
