Habitat for Humanity Warehouse Sale this Saturday


"Our loss can be your gain,"said ReStore Manager Michael Urness.
Everything must go, that's what the Lafayette Habitat for Humanity says. Their ReStore is full and there's no space to store anymore items.
"We're going to have to move everything out so we're eager to get things out the door,"said Executive Director Melinda Taylor.
This saturday is their warehouse sale. There are countless items up for sale like chairs, desks, lamps, paintings, and even bath tubs.
All the items are gently used and in great condition, but the best part about them are the low prices. On Saturday from 6 a.m.9a.m. everything will be 30% off..... from 9 a.m. to noon everything will be 20% off.
"It's a chance to save more off of our already low prices,"said Urness.
All the money they make Saturday will go directly toward Habitat's building program.
"We really want to see the ReStore grow because it helps us put money back into our general operating costs so that everything that people donate to Habitat can go directly into the homebuilding program,"said Taylor.
They work with families who have reliable income and are ready to be homeowners---but don't qualify for conventional home financing. That's where Habitat steps in.
"They're families who we say need a hand up not a hand out. They work very hard,"said Taylor.

The event is taking place Saturday from 6am-4pm. For more information call 337-261-5041.
