The five new Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity homes dedicated in the Harambee neighborhood on Nov. 12 were built with proceeds from the Milwaukee Habitat ReStore. The ReStore, at 3015 N. 114th St., in Wauwatosa, takes donations of new and used building materials, furniture and appliances and resells those goods to the public. Since opening in 2005, the ReStore has diverted more than 3.5 million pounds of usable materials from landfills.
