  • Brown County Habitat for Humanity now sells new/used, donated household items to raise funds for new home construction and exterior home repairs.
     
    Much like the ReStore in Mankato, the Brown County affiliate takes donated cabinetry, appliances, hardware, doors, windows, fixtures, carpet, paint, furniture, etc. and sells the items to those looking for new and/or gently used household items at a reduced price, and in turn uses the money to fund projects.
     
    Brown County Habitat for Humanity does not have the required 45,000+ populated service area to open an official ReStore, but is allowed to operate a warehouse, or in this case storage unit, and run it in much the same way.
     
    All funds raised stay in Brown County.
     
    Currently items are sold on Facebook and Craigslist and interested parties can also make appointments to view items for sale stored at New Ulm Storage, located at 424 North Valley Street in New Ulm.
     
    Parties interested in donating or purchasing can call the office at 507-354-4287 or e-mail browncohfh@gmail.com.
