Met with Habitat for Humanity ReStore

Posted by Daphne Hulse on July 7, 2023

On July 7, 2023, Daphne Hulse met with Habitat for Humanity ReStore Director Chad Hoffman and Executive Director Brandon Fischer to discuss participating in the 2024 collection event.

  • Daphne gave a brief overview of the history, and how the operations worked for the 2023 event
    • 8 undergraduate hall locations
    • All locations were shared between Goodwill and Salt & Light, so that hard items and soft items could be separated
    • Daphne indicated the desire to eliminate the "sharing" of containers and to instead have non-profts operate by locations, gathering all that is dropped off
  • Habitat for Humanity does not take any of the soft items listed: clothing, bedding, linens, shoes
    • Suggested that Salt & Light or Goodwill could pick up the soft items left at these locations
  • Would like furniture
    • Agree that it aligns better to target locations which would have furniture, more likely (family and graduate housing)
    • Do not want any damaged furniture
  • Closed Sundays and Mondays, so could not pick up on these days
