Habitat's "Door on the Dock"

Our local Habitat for Humanity has gathered hundreds of household items initiating two fundraisers this week.
Our local Habitat for Humanity has gathered hundreds of household items initiating two fundraisers this week.

For nearly 40 years Habitat for Humanity has provided families with a safe and affordable forever home.

San Angelo Office Manager, Dorothy Noriega, says the local non-profit organization is set to complete their 71st home in San Angelo.

"It's just the thing of giving back and like I said making them feel like they have their home, and somewhere secure and blessed that they can be at," Noriega said.

Noriega says the communities ongoing support allows Habitat for Humanity to serve the needs of our local families.

"It's just the whole experience about having your own home," Noriega said.

Noriega says they've seen an increase in donations this year triggering two fundraisers this week.

"We're lucky that here in San Angelo we get a lot of people that remodel and instead of taking those good items that are still good to the landfill, they b ring them back over to us and we can resell them," Noriega said.

Noriega says rather than throwing away several household items, you can help out a fellow resident.

"Some people can't afford to go out and buy new items each time, so you can come in here and find sometimes new items," Noriega said.

Habitat for Humanity is hosting the first door sale on the dock, Thursday morning. Noriega says the non-profit organization has collected almost 150 doors.

"A door that's maybe $300-$400 is $5 here. With this money we can also not help just the community, but we can continue our bills," Noriega said.

Noriega says they expect a line of shoppers an hour prior to the event located on the dock of the warehouse. Doors will open Thursday at 9 a.m. for the first annual door sale, located on the dock of the warehouse on 401 Chadbourne.

Habitat for Humanity will also be hosting the bi-monthly event, ReStore, Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
