LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– The house that LEX 18 is working on with Habitat for Humanity is closer to looking like a home. While building houses is a big part of the organization, building homes isn’t the only thing Habitat does.

“They are donation centers and home improvement stores. so, we sell new and used furniture, decorations, building supplies, and home maintenance supplies,” said Lexington Habitat for Humanity Communications Coordinator, Brandalin Foster.

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are open to the public and proceeds help fund Lexington Habitat’s home projects like the house LEX 18 and CHI St. Joseph Healthcare is sponsoring.

Donations can be dropped off at the ReStore locations, or even picked up.

“It’s a free service that we’ll come out and take out your appliances and entire kitchen cabinet set and sell it here, so someone looking for cabinets for their home can find it at an affordable price. We also recycle paint here as well,” said Lexington Habitat for Humanity Outreach Coordinator Christina Grimm.
