3/30/2013 - Habitat for Humanity collects goods for local fire companies -
During the discussion of the needs of the Eastern Shore, the topic of the Accomack arsonist came up, and the tireless service given by the volunteer firefighters across the Shore. Board members decided to bring supplies to be given to the firefighters to our board meeting the following Monday.
At the Board Meeting, the items were brought in and covered the entire conference table in the meeting room. Two of the board members, who live in Virginia Beach, brought this donation up at their church on Sunday, and Virginia Beach Christian Church contributed over $500 for this effort. Gas cards as well as supplies were brought in for the collection. The Board is pleased to make this donation to our loyal firefighters.
From now until May 1, 2013, the ESVA Habitat ReStore will have a box available for anyone to make a donation to these brave, hard working volunteers. The ReStore will also give 10% discount to any volunteer firefighter who shops at the store until May 1, 2013. The ReStore is located at 3271 Main Street, Exmore and is open Wednesday through Friday from 10am-5pm and Saturday from 9am-2pm. Suggested supplies include dish soap, bottled water, Gator Aid, Protein Bars, coffee, cream, sugar and paper products. The ReStore can be reached at 757 442-3500 for more information.
