ReStore Welcomes New Store Manager

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WVa., (June 27, 2014) – The Habitat for Humanity ReStore located on Main Street is pleased to welcome Brian Allen as the new ReStore manager. Brian is a recent graduate from Concord University, having received a bachelors in communications in December, and is a native of Summers County.

“I’m looking forward to being part of the ReStore’s success and I’m excited about the opportunity to be involved with Habitat for Humanity.” Allen said. “This is the first time I’ve worked in retail and for a Christian organization.”

Allen hopes to use his broadcasting and multimedia skills to help promote the ReStore and generate new partnerships for donations. He’s previously used those skills in the private sector and the military, having served with the United States Air Force. He currently volunteers at WHFI, an area radio station. He feels he’s up to the challenge to learning the ins and outs of retail and expanding his experiences.

The purpose of the ReStore is to serve as a constant fundraiser for Almost Heaven Habitat for Humanity, which serves Greenbrier, Pendleton, and Pocahontas Counties. As a non-profit, ecumenical Christian organization, their mission is to eliminate substandard poverty housing and homelessness. The ReStore resells donated building materials and home items to raise money for the construction of Habitat houses. New, used and surplus materials are donated to the ReStore by individuals, contractors, businesses, retailers and manufacturers. The ReStore is a way for people on tight budgets to repair and maintain their property while also helping others realize the dream of owning a home.

The Restore in located at 37 Main Street in White Sulphur Springs. Their hours are 10am till 5pm, Thursday through Saturday, and they accept donations during those times as well. The ReStore has a Facebook page at which lists type of items they accept for donation and features those that are for sale.

“The ReStore is a community project in a sense,” he said, “businesses and individuals provide our inventory and others buy it, but we’re all helping people with their homes and that’s important.”

Allen is married and has one son, a dog and a cat. They all currently live in Alderson, W.Va.
