Times are challenging and our communities need support now, more than ever. In an effort to lend a helping hand, EuroLine Windows donated over 40 new windows and doors to the Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver ReStore.
ReStores sell new and gently used items for homes and gardens to the public, and there are several locations throughout the Lower Mainland. All merchandise comes from corporate and individual donors and all proceeds from the sales go back to Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver.
One dreary February day, the windows and doors were loaded into a EuroLine truck and transported to the newest ReStore in Burnaby, which will be opening later this month. There, we met Daryl and his team of volunteers who were ready and waiting to unload our donation.
With the help of Denis, one of our drivers, and Isbrand, our CEO, the Habitat crew soon had the truck emptied and the windows and doors stacked up along one wall of their huge warehouse. Denis made unloading huge, heavy windows look easy (just check out our Facebook photos!).
At the end of the day, the ReStore had some beautiful new windows and doors for their outlet, and the volunteers got a real workout from moving all those heavy items!
It was a pleasure to meet Daryl and his crew! We are happy to have had the opportunity to contribute to a great cause and we wish the Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver ReStore continued success, helping those in need to obtain affordable housing!
