Multnomah County salvaged materials keep on giving

The call came in a couple of years ago. Multnomah County was moving some portable shop facilites and they wondered if we would be interested in salvaging the attached ADA-compliant ramps. Mark Haley, The ReStores business relations director and several Evergreen Habitat for Humanity site volunteers went to work pulling apart the structures and storing the lumber for future projects.

That was in 2013. The lumber and handrails, which were ADA specific, were used in at least six Habitat home projects in the Vancouver area. The last of the materials was used in building a deck for a Battleground school teacher diagnosed with cancer. The timber salvaged two years ago just kept on giving and improving the lives. We just want to say thank you to donors like Multnomah County who understand the long-lasting impact of sharing.
