Brookings Habitat ReStore

Habitat ReStores are owned and operated by local Habitat for Humanity affiliates. They accept donations and sell home improvement items to the public at a fraction of the retail price.

Proceeds are used to build strength, stability, self-reliance, and shelter in local communities and around the world — a good deal for you and your community.

Nail The Runway

Nail the Runway is a construction-based fashion show with a twist!

  • All designs must be partially made of building materials (tile, wood, landscaping fabric, window screen, and other house building materials).
  • Non-visible portions of the design are not required to be construction-related materials and do not count toward the overall percentage.
  • All proceeds will directly benefit the home construction program at Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity.
