GLENS FALLS — In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, Habitat for Humanity of Northern Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties will host its first donation drive to collect goods for resale at the affiliate’s soon-to-be-opened Habitat Restore.

Ania Macejka, a spokeswoman for Habitat, said the new ReStore is scheduled to open this summer at 1373 Route 9 in the Town of Moreau.

The Glens Falls Habitat affiliate will host the donation drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be accepting goods at two locations: the new ReStore on Route 9 in Moreau and the Knights of Columbus located at 50 Pine Road in Saratoga Springs.

Local residents can get a jumpstart on spring-cleaning while supporting the Habitat mission to help families build a place they call home. Businesses and residents can donate items ranging from appliances, furniture and home goods to cabinets, lighting and building products.

Local residents and businesses also can call 518-415-2525 to schedule a pick up for large goods donations. The nonprofit will issue a receipt for the accepted goods during the donation drive.

“We are pleased to participate in the celebration of Earth Day by creating an opportunity to recycle unwanted household items and help fund affordable housing at the same time,” said Tammy DiCara, president of the Glens Falls affiliate.

The Habitat ReStore relies on donations from individuals and businesses to keep supplies stocked and all proceeds generated will be used to help build homes in Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties. Shoppers can find items to use immediately or others that they can ‘up cycle’ to use at a later date.

“Our local affiliate is extremely proud to be opening a ReStore. This is the first of many steps as we grow from building one home per year to three homes per year,” said Adam Feldman, executive director of the Glens Falls Habitat for Humanity.
