Pensacola Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore recently received a large lumber and hardware donation totaling over $126,000 worth of supplies from locally owned Meredith and Son’s Lumber.

Over eight days, Pensacola Habitat for Humanity, Meredith Son’s and Lumber, volunteers, and Home Buyers hauled off 23 box trucks and nine flatbed trucks of donations made by Meredith and Son’s Lumber. It is the largest donation at one time the ReStore has seen in three years.
“This donation means so much to the ReStore and Pensacola Habitat for Humanity. We are so grateful to have community leaders like Meredith Son’s and Lumber support our mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope. Donations like this make it possible for us to accomplish our goal of providing affordable homeownership options for deserving families of Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties” stated Sam Young, CEO of Pensacola Habitat for Humanity.

Meredith and Son’s Lumber, located in Gulf Breeze, supplies anything from decks, docks, marine stainless-steel products to traditional lumber products, general hardware, and more. They donated multiple types of building materials like doors, hardware and much more. This donation will supply Pensacola Habitat’s ReStore and be used to build new homes within Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties for Pensacola Habitat’s Home Buyer Program.

The proceeds from selling these donations at the ReStore will support Pensacola Habitat’s mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

“Last year, our family had to make the difficult decision to close our Pensacola store so we could concentrate our efforts on our marine construction material business. That decision left us with a lot of building materials that we no longer sell, but it also presented us with an opportunity to help our community by donating those materials to Pensacola Habitat,” said Dean Meredith, co-owner of Meredith and Sons Lumber.

The Pensacola Habitat for Humanity ReStore accepts donations of like-new household furniture and building materials. All revenue earned is reinvested into the community to provide affordable homeownership options to individuals and families in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties. Drop off your donation to the Pensacola ReStore located at 6931 N9 th Ave, Suite 29, anytime between 10 am and 5:30 pm, Tuesday- Saturday, or schedule a free pick-up online by visiting pensacolarestore.com/donate.
