An organization that provides low-income residents with housing needs a place to call home.
Habitat for Humanity recently had to leave its free facility because the structure is being demolished to make way for a commercial development. That has left the group working out of a storage locker.
“As donations continue to come in, we find ourselves short of storage space,” said Brian DeBoice, with Vernon’s Habitat for Humanity.
“Many of the items are suitable for shipping to our restore in West Kelowna (which raises funds for Habitat) but we have to stockpile those items until a full load can be gathered. Many more items are more suited for either use here in Vernon or for our own yard sales where all funds go towards our next build.”
The previous facility was about 1,000-square-feet in size and something at least half as big is currently being sought.
“Certainly donated space is what we are looking for,” said DeBoice.
“We would like to thank Paul Guidi and Butcher Boys for their awesome support of Habitat for Humanity over the past five years. Their donation of space served us well and was absolutely free of charge.”
