Proceeds are used to help build strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter in local communities and around the world.

This could look like marketing the store to community members and donors, developing or enhancing a volunteer program, evaluating the impact of the store within the community or developing ReStore business processes. Each project development is created in a sustainable manner to continue beyond your service.
