Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County Relocates
Mar 01, 2014 04:56PM
Since 1987, Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County has built 42 homes throughout Burlington County and the ReStore has helped to keep thousands of materials from landfills. The affiliate has outgrown its home in Cinnaminson and will relocate to 530 Route 38, in East Maple Shade, this spring. Before the move, the Burlington County affiliate hopes to raise $2.5 million dollars. A moving sale is scheduled from March 17 to March 22. The current Burlington County location, offices and ReStore, will close from March 27 to 31. Its tentative grand opening in its new location is scheduled on April 4 and 5.
Mitchell Davis, the owner of Davis Enterprise and Habitat’s 2013 Volunteer of the Year, has been instrumental with the process of obtaining the building as well as raising the funds needed to move. Davis, who is providing Habitat with an affordable new building, comments, “The stability of a home helps people to thrive, communities to grow and the local economy to flourish. Habitat for Humanity is a part of our community, and my family and I believe it is important to support them as they grow into their new building.”
