Building supplies offered at habitat sale


CANTON — Windows, doors, lumber, sinks, countertops, roofing material and more will be offered at reduced prices at the Aug. 3 reuse sale sponsored by Raquette Valley Habitat for Humanity.

Donations of new and used construction materials are being accepted from individuals and businesses.

“We’ll have a myriad of items,” said JoAnn Fassinger, habitat member. “It’s really a great chance to recycle.”

The sale runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at St. Mary’s School gymnasium, corner of Court and Powers streets.

Habitat volunteers are available to pick up donated items, which will be screened for quality and likelihood of quick resale. In the past, several area busineses have donated, including Coakley’s, Triple A Buildng Center, Lowe’s and Merriman’s. Plants and other landscaping materials have also been donated in previous years.

Tools, cabinetry, light fixtures, plumbing suppllies and partially used cans of paint are also accepted for the sale.

“Basically, we’ll sell anything you can use for a house project or landscaping,” Mrs. Fassinger said.

The two prior sales generated $2,000 and $1,700.

“We’ve made some sales to contractors who were renovating apartments,” she said.

All proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity, a not-for-profit group that builds new homes for low-income partner families in St. Lawrence County. Habitat members will clean out their storage trailers of unused construction materials and place those items in the sale.

The next habitat home will be constructed on a donated parcel of property on Cottage Street in Norwood.

“We’re making sure we have a good bank account before we delve into the project,” Mrs. Fassigner said.

A partner family will likely be selected in the fall, with construction expected to start in the spring.
