Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley and Recycle That will have a collection truck on site to receive unused, unwanted and outdated clothing, shoes, fashion accessories, household goods, books, and CDs/DVDs. All items collected will go to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore (1351 Sherman Drive, Longmont) to be sold. All proceeds go to help build affordable housing for those in need here in the St. Vrain Valley. If someone has larger items to donate, they can contact the Habitat for Humanity ReStore to schedule a pick up at 303-776-3334.
‘Tis the season for SPRING CLEANING! Sort through the basement, and unclutter the garage. All those unused and unwanted items will benefit Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley. Established in 1988, Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley is the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. HFHSVV is dedicated to providing simple, decent, affordable housing for low-income families in the towns of Longmont, Erie, Dacono, Frederick, Firestone, Mead, Niwot and Lyons.
