Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity to open new Habitat Workshop on May 23


PITMAN, NJ —Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH) is hosting its grand opening for a new Habitat Workshop to open on May 23rd at 8 AM.  It will be located inside of the Habitat Restore at 425 South Broadway in Pitman.  All of the items in the Workshop are made of repurposed materials, donated by people in the community or home improvement stores.  The Habitat staff and volunteers worked together to create these one of a kind items.


“The Workshop gives back to the community in an eco-friendly, and cost effective way,” says Anthony Isabella, Executive Director of GCHFH.  “Our ReStore provides a source of low cost building materials and home furnishings to those who live in the area.  But our Habitat Workshop is even more valuable since we are repurposing all of the materials” Isabella later added.


Just in time for the summer season, a featured item is a one of a kind planting bench.  This bench is made of donated doors, PVC boards, and 2×4’s.  It has been refinished and painted in a light grey, with a beautiful medallion that sits in the center of the bench.  Another repurposed item is our coat hall tree which was created with donated panel doors and kitchen cabinets.  It has been refinished and painted with a white gloss.  Lastly, our space saving foldable work benches are perfect for anyone who enjoys working on home improvement projects and needs their work bench to be easily accessible.
