In Summer 2010, Lile International became a Founder’s Circle Partner of DonorsResource.org, a local non-profit organization dedicated to connecting individual and corporate donors giving in-kind donations (non-monetary) to non-profit organizations that need them. Donors Resource’s mission is to distribute household goods to families in need, referred to Donors Resource by social service agencies, case workers and community advocates. After distributing over 20,000 items within 18 months, Donorsresource.org created a centralized, online service connecting non-profits and donors. Their message is simple: Meet a Need. Donate Stuff. Currently managed by Riverdale High School Students as part of a nonprofit youth leadership program, Donors Resource offers an easy, online solution for donating items. If you have household or business items you wish to donate in your local community, visit Donorsresource.org.

Proceeds generate funds that help local Habitat for Humanity affiliates build homes in their communities. ReStores also keep usable building materials out of the waste stream and reduce demand for raw materials needed to create new products. Together, with their donors and shoppers, the three ReStores in the Portland Metro/Vancouver area contributed enough funding last year to build an additional five Habitat homes for local families. So whether you are moving or remodeling, your local ReStore is a great resource for donating usable materials and shopping for discounted items. Find the ReStore nearest you. There are dozens of ReStores located throughout Oregon and Washington.
