Habitat ReStore gets truck through generous donation
Through a generous donation from Lou and Joanne Hagopian, the Indian River Habitat for Humanity ReStore (aka Home Center) received a new box truck this week to replace its aging predecessor. The Hagopians are long-time supporters of Habitat, and he is a former member of Habitat’s Advisory Board.
The truck is a 2013 GMC Savannah 3500 from Linus Cadillac Buick GMC, and now sports colorful, new lettering on all sides. It will be used to pick up donations from businesses and individuals, a service the Habitat ReStore provides at no charge within Indian River County.
Since opening its doors in September 2005, the Habitat ReStore has become a vital fund-raising arm of the affiliate, the funds generated by ReStore sales resulting in homes for more than 61 families.
The ReStore’s summer hours: Tues. – Sat., 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. For further information on Habitat: 772-562-9860 X 209. For information on the Habitat ReStore: 772-257-0222 or 772-562-9860 X 204. On the web, visit www.irchabitat.org
