Thursday, November16th is Give to the Max Day!
Give to the Max Day is a day that inspires people to give to their favorite Minnesota non-profit during a 24 hour period of time. Last year, donors from MN and Beyond gave $20.1 million to over 5,700 nonprofits across the state.
We invite you to participate in Give to the Max Day by making a donation to support our next build for the April Bower Family in Park Rapids. We still need $20,000 to completely fund the home.
Special thank you to all of our Veterans!
Tid Bit for the week:  Did you know that Wednesday's and Saturday's are the busiest days of the week in the ReStore?  Great days to both shop and volunteer!
Kemp home
Volunteers needed
Here is next weeks tentative build schedule. We are getting close to completion! 
Nov 13th - 17th  There is a little bit of flooring to finish up, closet hardware to be comleted and several punch list items. Our goal is to have the house completed by the end of the week, but still need volunteers to reach that goal.
(schedule is always tentative due to weather, contractors, etc...)
Countertops are in.                        Winter is upon us!
