“Two Habitat houses that are currently under construction were fully funded through ReStore revenue, so our volunteers are directly impacting people in need of housing,” said Rob Selkow, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County.

“In addition to honoring Dr. King by serving others, this is also an opportunity for volunteers to meet future homeowner families who work in the ReStore in lieu of a down payment, which is what we call sweat equity,” Selkow stated.

The project involves improvements at the ReStore, including lighting and ceiling tile installation, painting, shelving, organizing the warehouse, and more. The ReStore is a major revenue source for the Habitat for Humanity home building program. Improvements will help support several Clarksville families currently working toward home ownership in 2021.

To sign up for the project, email with the subject line #MLK. Volunteers should be 16 and older, wear work clothes and closed-toe shoes, and bring gloves. The Clarksville ReStore is located at 404 Madison Street. Habitat will provide documentation for those performing community service. Liability waivers and sex offender registry background checks are required for all participants.  

Face masks and social distancing are required.
