You can help supply Habitat’s rebuilding efforts

July 13, 2013

A wooden attic ladder or weathered grey shingles are not likely to appear on the typical bridal registry. But it’s definitely on the list as Habitat for Humanity of Hood County rebuilds the Rancho Brazos neighborhood destroyed by a tornado May 15.

Items on the Habitat registry can be filled at Home Depot.

“We’ve partnered with Habitat to help rebuild the homes devastated by the tornado,” said Team Depot Captain Larry Jones, of the Granbury Home Depot store.

Citizens can view the registry at Home Depot, much like you would view a bridal registry at a department store. Items range from a 10 foot 2 X 4 for $5.27, or a louvered shutter for $45, up to a push mower for $149 or a microwave for $169.

In addition to the Granbury store, Jones said seven other Home Depot stores scattered from Metroplex down to Brownwood are participating in the effort.

Items purchased from the registry remain at Home Depot until needed by Habitat in the rebuilding process. This eliminates the issue of “storing” materials until they can be used.

Home Depot has also sent groups to the work site to help with the tornado recovery effort.

“The registry is another way to assist with the rebuilding effort,” Jones noted.
