Joy's Happy-tat!

We were so happy to give Ms. Joy the keys to her brand new Habitat home on September 10th! She was very rightly named because whenever she is around, joy fills the room, and Thursday afternoon was no exception. To see the sheer happiness on her face as she went into her home for the first time is something everyone there will remember and cherish forever. 

We cannot thank everyone who helped make this possible enough, but we will surely try! We would like to give a special thanks to -

Tony Dunser from True Grit who painted the beautiful red doors and the trim
Savage Tree Service
Mike Williams who did the electrical work
Baldwin Sand and Gravel
Brandon Dozier and Curt Schumacher for helping removing the large tree in the backyard
Lighting Unlimited 
Grass Pro Plus for doing the landscaping
Shane Glasgow
Parker Drywall
Paint Magic
Rock Bottom Furniture 

Thank you to all the volunteers who worked countless weekends at the job site, our Board Members, ReStore Volunteers and staff, and of course thank you to our fabulous donors and shoppers! You all are the reason this ministry can help provide affordable housing to our homeowners!

Ms. Joy's home will always hold a very special place with me because it was the first home built with me as the new Store Manager, and Joy has become a very dear friend to everyone in the store. It is a great honor to be a part of something that is bettering the lives of others in our community.

God bless you all.

-Emily Godwin, ReStore Manager
