Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod will be designating all proceeds from sales on April 8 and 9 at their two ReStore locations to benefit Ukrainian Refugees.

Shoppers are encouraged “Shop to Support Ukraine” at the Habitat Cape Cod ReStores at 805 Gifford St., Extension, Falmouth and 28 White’s Path, South Yarmouth, where they can purchase new and used home goods. Supporters can also donate online by visiting habitatcapecod.org and clicking on Ukraine Relief.
“We say it a lot, home is everything. Over the past two years living through the pandemic, we said it a lot more, and we all had a chance to truly understand what that means, home is where you are safe,” said Wendy Cullinan, CEO and President of Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod. “Our hearts break for those forced to leave their homes, and this is our opportunity to show that we care about families, near and far. Habitat International is providing essential emergency response, and Habitat Cape Cod wants to join in their efforts.”
In the past 35 years, Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod has developed over 165 affordable homes on Cape Cod. Local families help build their own homes alongside volunteers, purchase their home and pay an affordable mortgage. Habitat homes are deed restricted to remain affordable in perpetuity.
