On April 13 Habitat hosted an online meeting about Habitat Happenings in Georgetown – Shepherd’s Village Update. The meeting was recorded and can be viewd on this link.
Habitat for Humanity’s Round Rock ReStore permanently closed; Georgetown ReStore remains open with a newly expanded sales floor. Despite easy access and visible location, the volume of shoppers and sales never met the organization’s expectations. HFHWC continues to operate the Georgetown ReStore and plans to further develop its online store. HFHWC is exploring developing pop-up stores as well as mobile donation drop-off and sales sites.
“The ReStore program will continue to be a part of Habitat for Humanity’s efforts in Williamson County with our Georgetown ReStore remaining open with a newly expanded sales floor. Closing the Round Rock ReStore was a difficult yet necessary decision. During these challenging times, we need to use our current resources to best meet the goals of all three HFHWC programs – Homeownership, Home Repair and the Restore,” said Debbie Hoffman, Executive Director of HFHWC.
