They may consider throwing out those items; instead we want to encourage them to donate those items to the ReStore,” said Chrissy Sailstad, manager of the ReStore. “We’re excited to partner with Hilldrup to increase donations and raise more funds for Habitat for Humanity.”

In addition to receiving a tax-deductible donation receipt, all donors on March 19 will receive a swag bag filled with coupons and other giveaways from the ReStore, Hilldrup and VanMile.
