Sklar Furnishings and Habitat for Humanity
Since 1976 Habitat for Humanity has helped so many that there are few people who do not know and admire its work. We are definitely among the admirers at Sklar Furnishings.
Habitat for Humanity does more than build houses— it builds lives. A child can spend his time at school learning rather than worrying where he will sleep that night. A low-income worker can start saving for the future because his Habitat home has an affordable loan. Families can feel the pride of having a home with a permanent address to call their own.
Just how positive growing up in the stability of a family unit is can be demonstrated by just one of many examples. One of the very first recipients of a home 17 years ago just paid off her mortgage and now owns her home free and clear! At the event were her two children — one had just completed her Masters and was accepted into a PhD program. The other daughter had just completed her nursing degree. What beautifully productive citizens these young people are!
- Habitat of South Palm Beach County is 20 years old
- Has built 110 homes
Sklar Furnishings has been involved with Habitat for Humanity South Palm Beach County since our inception in 2002. We started by donating furniture and accessories that were coming off the floor to make room for new things. We quickly learned that these items are sold in their Restores to generate money to be used to buy the property and any of the supplies that are not donated by local businesses.
Our owner joined the board soon after and continues to be an active member. Our staff has participated in several ‘builds” including the annual Mother’s Day “Women Only Build” — almost any fundraising event we have at the store benefits Habitat and last year we were proud to sponsor our first home. We have plans to do this again this year.
Please keep Habitat in your thoughts whenever you have furnishings or home goods that you no longer need or can use and they will gladly bring a truck to your home and pick it all up for you. Think about volunteering for one of their builds or paint in the “Brush with Kindness” program. Your life will be changed—guaranteed.
Their number is 561-455-4609.
