Milwaukee-based Kahler Slater has formed a year-long partnership with Habitat for Humanity’s Milwaukee and Madison extensions to advance the company’s community involvement and align its philanthropy with a particular cause.
Through the partnership, Kahler Slater will launch the “ReStock the ReStore” campaign, a drive to spread awareness about the nonprofit’s ReStores, which collect donations of new and used furniture, building materials, appliances, fixtures, home goods and more to be repurposed and sold to area homeowners in need at reduced prices.
The campaign will also take donations to restock the ReStores’ inventories. From Monday, June 24, through Friday, June 28, community members can bring their donation goods to Kahler Slater’s Milwaukee and Madison office or to Habitat for Humanity’s area ReStores.
Kahler Slater is located at 648 N. Plankinton Ave. in Milwaukee and at 44 E. Mifflin St. in Madison.
Area Restores include ReStore West, located at 3015 N. 114th St. in Wauwatosa, and ReStore East, located at 420 S. First St. in Milwaukee.
Donations will be monitored, and the total weight of all donations will be calculated to determine how much unnecessary waste was saved from landfills.
“Kahler Slater is committed to supporting our communities, especially where our employees work and live,” said Kahler Slater chief executive officer George Meyer. “This partnership with Habitat for Humanity is a natural extension of our values.”
Later this year, Kahler Slater will build on its commitment to Habitat for Humanity with financial contributions generated through its United Ways Days of Caring as well as volunteer hours at Habitat home builds, ReStores, offices and more.
Habitat for Humanity is an international organization working to provide affordable housing to low-income families as well as both stabilize and revitalize neighborhoods. For more information about the Milwaukee branch, visit www.milwaukeehabitat.org.
