Habitat for Humanity announced in a letter to its volunteers Thursday it will be closing the Hays ReStore immediately and indefinitely.

According to the letter, after receiving information from Habitat for Humanity National concerning COVID-19 and visiting with the local Habitat director and the security member from its local board, the decision was made to close the store.

The ReStore closed during the statewide shutdown and only reopened to the public at the beginning of July. 

All proceeds from the store support the mission of Habitat for Humanity to provide affordable housing, advocate for fair and just housing policies, and provide training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
