NEW!! Fox Valley ReStore Location
While many of our businesses and serving opportunities have been closed recently, the mission field has remained open. Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity remains one of our serving partners at Grace. Though the construction of new homes was temporarily placed on hold, the need for support continues.
Many have noticed the ReStore near the Fox Valley Mall. That store has been operating as a "shared income" store, meaning more than one Habitat for Humanity affiliate benefited from the sales in that store. Recently, Fox Valley Habitat has acquired another building (on Orchard Road in Aurora), and now their affiliate, and the homeowners they serve, will benefit 100% from the sales in that location.
Currently, this NEW Fox Valley ReStore is accepting donations, with convenient curbside/front porch/garage pick-up. The next open pick-up date is June 25. See below for a list of items accepted and a contact number to arrange your pick-up.
