"Everyone we've talked to so far is excited about this event so we're expecting a great turnout! The only issue we're facing is that donations to the ReStore are slower during
the winter months and we are in need of more items for UpCycle participants to choose
from." Vicki Ribble, Executive Director, Bay County Habitat for Humanity shared.

materials, etc., please consider donating them to the Habitat ReStore. Donations can be
dropped off during regular business hours or you can call to schedule a free pick-up of
