Habitat for Humanity Aberdeen Restore is all about giving back to the community. It is a place for people to donate their unwanted furniture, pictures, lighting fixtures, decorations, etc. Their inventory is always changing!
I met the Store Manager of Aberdeen Restore, John Kunzelman. He has been at the Restore for a little over a year, but before being named manager in August, he was the Resource Development Coordinator and a volunteer. He also drove part-time when picking up local unwanted furniture from Harford County residents.
Aberdeen Restore gets 90% of their donations from households and business corporations. They offer a pick-up service via their website that allows residents to schedule a pick-up and post pictures of the furniture they are looking to donate. Due to Covid, businesses haven’t been donating as much, but the community has stepped up to the plate. This season the Restore experienced a surplus of Christmas decorations! Another great thing about the community is that businesses have been turning to Restore to find furniture for their businesses. The money goes to a great cause and it’s a way to recycle.
The staff consists of six full-time members but the rest is strictly volunteers. The Aberdeen Restore is a non-profit organization and all proceeds go to The Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna. If you are looking to donate some old furniture, home appliances, décor or even some unused supplies, then head on over to Aberdeen Restore. One person’s unwanted belongings are another person’s treasure.
