In August U.S. Navy service members from the Pacific Missile Range Facility gave Kaua‘i Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore a much needed facelift. The exterior work conducted by the volunteer crews included painting the building exterior and installing soffit boards. The 2-day project was part of an ongoing ReStore improvement and capacity building project, the press release states.

 PMRF Commanding Officer Capt. Bruce W. Hay stated that he is “proud of the PMRF team and their volunteer spirit.”

Captain Hay looks forward to future opportunities to again assist our neighbors in the community through volunteer work with Kaua‘i Habitat for Humanity.

“ReStore is Kaua‘i Habitat’s resale outlet for new and used clothing, furniture, home improvement items, and more. All goods are donated to Kaua‘i Habitat and every penny raised from store purchases goes right back into funding our work of creating affordable housing opportunities for Kaua‘i,” Said ReStore manager Cynthia Dazzi.

“We hope to bring a new point-of-sale system online soon and hold a grand re-opening sale in the near future.”

Recent improvements to ReStore include: reorganization of sales floor, improved quality of merchandise, increased home improvement goods and building materials inventory, staff training, and addition of a point-of-sale system. Funding for the ReStore capacity building project was made possible in part from a grant from Hawai‘i Community Foundation.
