Work on the 1700 square foot addition to the TAHFH ReStore is nearing completion. The ReStore addition will provide much-needed additional floor space to display the store's growing collection of items for sale, and the new loading dock will help store employees load and unload heavy items through the new 12-foot rolling door.
We are reaching out to the community and all of Cherokee County to help us spread the word about donating furniture, doors, windows, hardware, tools, televisions, housewares, collectibles, cell phones, etc. We ask that all donated items be in good working order, and remember that your donations are tax-deductible.

Much of the work was done by Talking Leaves Job Corps, Indian Capital Technology Center, and Habitat volunteers, some of whom are pictured below. Thank you!
Paint and Repair Projects
Since 2009 Tahlequah Area Habitat for
Humanity (TAHFH) has completed a total of 35 painting and repair projects called
A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) and Critical Home Repair (CHR). ABWK is
an exterior painting project and CHR does repairs that affect the health
and safety of the homeowner. The Valspar Paint Corporation has donated
the paint we use for both new construction and ABWK. Other repairs to
the outside of houses have been done, such as patching or replacing
roofs and repairing porches and windows. This year we are continuing
these efforts through donations of time and money. For example, the
Tahlequah Community Foundation funded a repair to the porch of an
elderly lady, and employees of Fairfield Marriott in Muskogee helped
paint the home of one of our homeowners.
Tahlequah Area Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, 501c(3) corporation.
