Habitat Catawba Valley & ReStore Catawba Reopening Update

Jun 29, 2020 | COVID-19

Shelter and safety go hand in hand. Though our doors have been closed to the public, the team at Habitat Catawba Valley has still been hard at work this entire time building forward. Now, we are excited to announce that we are beginning to resume some of our public operations. Our staged reopening prioritizes the areas of service which are most essential to our mission and in which we can best guarantee the safety of our staff, supporters, and neighbors. We have implemented increased safety and sanitation measures throughout our operations. We look forward to welcoming you back as we reopen our public offerings. Below is an overview of our current measures. We will continue to monitor the local health landscape and respond accordingly, so check back often for updates! As always, we thank you for your continued kindness and cooperation as we work to build safety, strength, and stability for all our Catawba Valley neighbors.

Reopening measures:

  • Habitat Catawba Valley & ReStore Catawba have taken the Open & Safe Commitment.
  • ReStore Catawba is open and welcoming shoppers with expanded hours Wednesday – Saturday, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Contact-free donation drop off times Monday – Saturday, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, or schedule a pick up by calling 828-327-7467.

For Habitat homeowners, a home means stability.  If you’re someone that has always had a home and family, then you, like me, probably have never fully appreciated the importance of the stability that comes with living in your own home.  Habitat helps its homeowners build stability for themselves and their families in many areas.
