Recently, we have added a new way to help. This is through the strong partnership we have developed with Habitat for Humanity of Alberta in Medicine Hat. This non-profit organization has helped hundreds of people find adequate shelter for their families. From newly built homes to remodels, the people of Habitat for Humanity in Medicine Hat have worked hard to assist those who are in need.
We work closely with Habitat and purchase some of our building materials directly from their ReStore. The ReStore is a building supply store where both individuals and companies like our own purchase slightly used building materials for a much lower price. This helps us save our customers money while still providing high-quality materials for their homes. In return, the money made from the sale of these materials goes directly back into Habitat for Humanity’s budget, allowing them to continue to provide shelter for those in need.
At ReStore Medicine Hat, you can find a wide range of building materials such as doors, windows, and other new and used items. Sometimes our jobs require, for example, only replacing a single baseboard. So instead of purchasing all new ones, we look for one that will match the old ones. This helps us keep down costs – savings which we can then pass on to the customer. This works well when dealing with insurance companies who are often strict about what they will pay for.
The ReStore gets its building materials from major construction and restoration companies all over Alberta, including us here at Cranes Restoration. Whenever we finish a job, and we have usable building scraps left over, we donate them to Habitat for Humanity of Alberta in Medicine Hat. Recently, we donated truckloads! They can either use these materials on one of their own building projects or put them for sale in the ReStore.
This symbiotic relationship of giving and taking works well for both our company and Habitat for Humanity. But those who are in need are the ones that benefit the most. We are proud to have a working relationship with Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Medicine Hat and look forward to many years of combined effort to help those in need.
