RSY Adopts July 21

July 21st at Bell Family Shelter goes out to Re-Source York! Started as a partnership between Bell and York Habitat for Humanity in 2002, Re-Source York sells used furniture, home goods, and building supplies donated by the community. A portion of the sales from each Re-Source store is set aside and donated to Bell Family Shelter, which adds up to about one Adopt-a-Day each month. Through its economical re-use of local materials, Re-Source York embodies its core values of environmental and social responsibility.

We caught PJ in the middle of his designated naptime.

This post is dedicated to Re-Source’s home improvement store. Here, you’ll find all sorts of handy bits and doodads that’ll no doubt be useful for your next DIY project. Nuts, bolts, doors, windows, cabinets—if you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of PJ the cat, Re-Source’s proud mascot! (We had the opportunity to meet with PJ in-person, and while he had no words to share with us, we can assure you he’s very receptive to visitors.)

Executive director Zachary Claghorn oversees both Re-Source York locations, and as an avid supporter of the York community, he strongly believes in Bell’s mission. “I like the aspect that Bell Family Shelter doesn’t separate families and that it treats the men in the families fairly.” Zach encourages others to reach out in their local community to those in need. “A little bit of help goes a long way,” he says. “You don’t have to move the world on your own. If we all band together and do our part, things can change and we can make a difference.”

Re-Source York’s home improvement store can be found at 161 East 9th Avenue and is open from 9 AM to 5 PM Tuesday through Friday and 9 AM to 4 PM on Saturday. If you’ve been looking to buy some parts or fixtures at a good price while supporting a good cause, head on over to Re-Source York!

Adopt-a-Day gifts cover the cost of operating Bell Family Shelter for a full day. If you’d like to join the fine folks at Re-Source York in making sure the Shelter is open to welcome York County families in times of emergency, consider your own gift of support. You can make a one-time gift or set up a recurring monthly donation. Use our donation page to get started right now.
