Welcome Americorps NCCC Team!

Habitat is thrilled to announce the arrival of our 2017 AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) team.
 
The team of 10 college-age NCCC members, who hail from Arizona to New York, will be volunteering with Habitat for 6 weeks this summer to help with home repairs and community outreach. This is the 4th NCCC team that Habitat for Humanity of Summit and Wasatch Counties has hosted, and they will be following up on the work of the 2016 team that conducted a rooftop survey on the condition of nearly 1,000 homes.
 
This busy team will be working all over Summit and Wasatch Counties helping with repairs for low to moderate-income homeowners, with a special focus on veterans, senior citizens, and people with disabilities. They will work Tuesday through Saturday in the community, and live on a modest budget in the tradition of all AmeriCorps programs. While these teams often camp during their service projects, employee housing will be provided through the generous support of Deer Valley Resort.
 
AmeriCorps NCCC teams are based on the model of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930’s, to strengthen communities and develop leaders through team-based community service with non-profits. Park City is the fourth stop for this particular NCCC team, who has also spent time in Louisiana, Oregon, and California. Their projects have ranged from FEMA flood disaster relief, to preservation and restoration of native species in wild spaces. While they do not choose their destination cities, they have committed 10 months of their lives to selflessly helping others in the communities where they are sent.
 
Please watch for these fantastic young people when you’re out in the community, and let them know how much we appreciate their support in our beautiful mountain town. If you know of someone who may qualify for a repair project, please call (435) 658-1400 or Contact Us

Brewed for a Good Cause

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new Habitat for Humanity coffee line, in partnership with Hugo Coffee of Park City. Claudia McMullin, the owner of Hugo, has always been a friend of local nonprofits. We are excited to work even more closely with the Hugo team now to carry our own label. Not only is the locally roasted coffee delicious, but proceeds from the Habitat brews sold at the ReStore will benefit families served by our affordable housing programs.

 

If you haven’t been to the Park City ReStore lately, you may also notice that we are serving the Builder’s Choice blend at our coffee bar at the front of the store. Stop by today to sample a cup, and pick up your own bag of our House Blend, Builder’s Choice, or ReStore Roast Decaf. Chances are you will also find some incredible treasures while you’re enjoying that cup of joe.

 



 

Habitat House Blend

 

House Blend | Bright, Sweet, Playful

Different, exciting and aggressive, it’s not the “normal” coffee sitting in your cabinet right now. It’s lightly roasted to leave in more of the beans’ natural flavors and more of the caffeine. What is coffee? What can it be? Take this Costa Rican/Brazilian blend home and begin the journey. As its name suggests and in the tradition of coffee’s third wave, Habitat’s House Blend is an edgy blend designed for the adventurous coffee explorer.

 



 

Builder's Choice

 

Builder’s Choice | Dark Fruit, Creamy, Baker’s Chocolate

Comprised of our unique blend of Brazilian and Colombian beans with nice tannic acidity, Builder’s Choice is tasty, dependable and pleasing. Pour it to everyone’s satisfaction, and make an extra pot while you’re at it because they’ll be back for more. A bold and round coffee built for everyone’s cup. Rich flavor. Big mouth feel. The staple of what coffee is.

 



 

 

ReStore Roast Decaf | Full-Body Joy

Designed for those who love the taste and ritual of coffee, but are done with caffeine for the day. Thoughtful bean selection, a unique natural decaffeination process, and careful roasting yield a delightfully strong decaf without the typical burnt, smoky, chemical decaf taste. Relax, rejoice, repeat. With caramel, coca and banana bread flavors, this intensely palatable coffee just happens to be decaf.

Habitat Heroes

We are sad to say ‘goodbye’ to our longtime volunteers, Rod and Kay Grimme. Between the two of them, they have been volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and ReStores nationwide for almost 25 years! Both began volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in Ponca City, Oklahoma. There Rod helped with 6 new home builds and Kay served through the local ReStore. After moving to the area, the two immediately became involved with Habitat for Humanity of Summit and Wasatch Counties.

 

Over the years, Rod has helped with numerous repair projects and home builds, and volunteered regularly at our recent home build in Heber. His support was indispensable, and he was able to celebrate the completion of the project at the home’s dedication ceremony in December.

 

When the ReStore opened in 2013, Rod and Kay were part of the original team that helped turn it into the success it is today. Among the many talents Kay has contributed while at ReStore, was her expert organization, stocking, and merchandising of our large blinds which built a very lucrative program for the store.

 

Rod and Kay are moving to be near their darling grandchildren, and we will miss them dearly. We wish them the very best in their new endeavor. Their contribution to our success will not be forgotten, and we know they will make an incredible impact in their new community!

Home is the Key

Did you know that one in four households in the US pays more than 30% of their income for housing and may have difficulty affording food, clothing, medical care or other necessities? To address the critical need for affordable housing in our community and around the world, we are joining Home is the Key, a national campaign by Habitat for Humanity International aimed at highlighting the need for decent, affordable shelter throughout the month of April.

 

Inadequate housing conditions create barriers to opportunity, success, stability and health, and we are working hard in your community to unlock the potential of hard-working families. By shopping, donating and volunteering at your neighborhood Habitat for Humanity and ReStore, you are part of a worldwide movement dedicated to ensuring everyone has a decent place to live.

 

For the month of April, in support of the Home is the Key initiative, Park City ReStore customers can make a donation at the cash register that will directly impact local housing programs and services. Come visit our ReStore today to get involved.
