Paint and Repair Projects Since 2009 Tahlequah Area Habitat for
Humanity (TAHFH) has completed a total of 27 painting and repair projects called
A Brush with Kindness (ABWK) and Critical Home Repair (CHR). ABWK is
an exterior painting project and CHR does repairs that affect the health
and safety of the homeowner. The Valspar Paint Corporation has donated
the paint we use for both new construction and ABWK. Other repairs to
the outside of houses have been done, such as patching or replacing
roofs and repairing porches and windows. This year we are continuing
these efforts through donations of time and money. For example, the
Tahlequah Community Foundation funded a repair to the porch of an
elderly lady, and employees of Fairfield Marriott in Muskogee helped
paint the home of one of our homeowners.
TAHFH ReStore is continually on the up-swing. We met our budget for
the past fiscal year with the help of all those individuals and
businesses that generously donated items to the store. A big THANK YOU
to our volunteers who give of their time to help organize, clean,
display items, and assist our customers on Saturdays. We are reaching
out to the community and all of Cherokee County to help us spread the
word about donating furniture, doors, windows, hardware, tools,
televisions, housewares, cell phones, etc. We ask that all donated items be in good
working order, and remember that your donations are tax-deductible. The
ReStore is located on the corner of First and College Avenue in
the west end of the building, and the Store phone number is 918-822-7201.
We need volunteers every Saturday at the ReStore to help,
as well as a couple of days during the week. This is perfect inside
volunteer work during hot or cold weather. Sign up to help in the
store here: Surplus Store. Recently students from Talking Leaves Job Corps helped upgrade the lights at the Surplus Store. Read more here.
