The Polk County Community Foundation awarded Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity a grant from the Unrestricted Fund to be used to remodel the Habitat ReStore in Landrum.
The remodeling included new front doors. The interior of the store was changed to move the entrance/exit to the center, add an office, change the location of the used book section to a more desirable location and paint walls.
It is hoped that this new look will attract more customers so that the profits from the store will increase. These profits are used to purchase building materials for constructing homes.
The Thermal Belt Habitat for Humanity affiliate would like to thank the Polk County Community Foundation for its generous support, which made this project possible.
