Mecosta County Habitat For Humanity Making the Most out of Restored Items

Instead of throwing out used items, a Northern Michigan nonprofit is challenging you to repurpose them into something unique.

The Mecosta County Habitat for Humanity is holding their annual restore it contest.

Members of the community are encouraged to take any used items and create something new from it.

Re-furbished items donated to the ReStore, then get put up for a silent auction.

Money raised will benefit their housing programs.

Barbara Seabolt, the ex-director at the Mecosta County Habitat for Humanity said, “One of the ways that we raise funds to do our home programs is through our ReStore. One of the additional ways we try to do it is by continuously engaging people in the things that are important to us which is repurposing, reusing and recycling and getting people excited about that as well.”

Repurposed silent auction items will be accepted until the end of March.

You can place a bid on any of the items right at the restore through April.
