ST. GEORGE – In the wake of recent tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma and Texas, destroying homes, killing at least 24 and injuring more than 100 people and leaving behind destruction, Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Utah is calling on the local community to help.
In Granbury, Texas, 58 of the 61 homes built by Habitat for Humanity and their homeowners were demolished or severely damaged, Habitat Southwest Utah’s director of engagement, Lil Barron, said. Two were under construction, with one to be dedicated on May 18 that was completely destroyed.
In response to these devastating tragedies, Habitat Southwest Utah will be introducing the ReStore Round-Up Program. ReStore cashiers will be asking customers to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar, with 100 percent of the purchases until May 31 going directly to relief efforts in Texas and Oklahoma.
The ReStore will also be donating 10 percent of all purchases through the end of the month towards relief efforts.
