Orangeville’s Habitat for Humanity gets boost from Swiffer


Habitat for Humanity's ReStore is celebrating 25 years of business in Canada and Swiffer, the household-cleaning product, is making a significant contribution that will assist the Orangeville ReStore at 220 First Street.


For every transaction made at all Habitat for Humanity's ReStore across Canada, Swiffer will donate $1.  The campaign runs until October 31st.


Habitat for Humanity's ReStore in Orangeville is a home and building supply store that accepts and resells quality new and used building supplies, home furnishing, appliances and décor.  They accept donations of second-hand, over-stocked and discontinued items, as well as salvageable building materials donated by manufacturers, stores, contractors and individuals.


The proceeds collected from each ReStore fund Habitat for Humanity operations and homebuilding projects across the country.


The first Habitat for Humanity's ReStore opened in Winnipeg in 1991.  They now celebrate their 25th anniversary with almost 100 locations across Canada.


It's estimated that Habitat's ReStores in Canada have been directly responsible for the construction of 1,200 Habitat for Humanity homes and in excess of 250,000 tonnes of material being diverted from landfills.


“We are thankful for Swiffer's support and the funds generated through this campaign will support our newest build project,” said Nancy Frazer, Director of Retail Operation of Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph.


She said she hopes to increase awareness in Orangeville about the Habitat for Humanity ReStore and its impact on the community, adding that Habitat for Humanity has plans to build homes in Orangeville in the near future.  Every purchase at Habitat for Humanity ReStore helps fund this endeavor.
