Habitat Happenings Summer 2021 Edition

Jun 11, 2021 |

Welcome to Cityview Village!

“This whole experience has changed my life for the better. You have given me back my life and allowed me to grow. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

As our Cityview Village project came to a successful conclusion last year, we began to look to the future. We experienced the unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic with a cautious optimism. Habitat for Humanity Guelph Wellington has now arrived in the summer of 2021 with a positive financial foundation from which we can dream of our next affordable housing project. It might seem quiet here at Habitat GW, but behind the scenes we are hard at work preparing a solid plan for the future. We can all agree that strong foundations allow for big dreams and a hope for the future. We can’t wait to share with you what we have been working on!

We are getting ready to welcome you back to the ReStore! Reopening Saturday, June 12!

In-Store Shopping Hours: 9:00am to 5:00pm, Tuesday-Saturday

Donation Centre Hours: 9:00am to 4:30pm, Tuesday to Saturday

Capacity limits, social distancing and face coverings are enforced both inside and at all entrances for the safety and well-being of our shoppers, volunteers and staff.
