TEXARKANA, Texas -- After enduring eight months without a sign due to storm damage in November 2022, Habitat for Humanity ReStore proudly unveiled its brand-new sign Monday.
A donation from the Patterson-Troike Foundation made the construction of the 30-foot-wide, 10-foot-tall sign possible, ensuring its longevity for years to come.
The significance of the new sign was not lost on ReStore Manager Donna Williamson.
"It means everything. When those strong storms came, the winds just took our previous sign out. So, we have been without a sign ever since," she said.
Operating as part of the Habitat for Humanity program, the ReStore serves as a home improvement hub, benefiting both the construction repair program and the local community. The store specializes in selling gently used and like-new items, offering residents of Texarkana and the surrounding area an affordable shopping experience they can feel good about.
Williamson emphasized the importance of the ReStore's role within the community.
"We want people to be able to shop affordably in the store and enjoy the items they purchased. Having a store like this in Texarkana is great because we are all one unit in the end. We all support each other," she said
In addition to the new sign, the ReStore truck is back in operation, resuming pick-ups and deliveries to further facilitate the community's access to quality items. Donations are accepted 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays.
