RePurpose for a Reason 2021

RePurpose for a Reason 2021

About This Campaign

We are pleased to announce that RePurpose for a Reason 2021 will resume in person! The event will feature the annual silent auction featuring hand-crafted and DIY projects made locally. New this year, we will host the event at the ReStore where you will be able to visit the store, tour and bid on the auction projects, and enjoy a little entertainment.

We are looking for project makers for 2021 auction items, and we need your help. If you are a DIYer (anything from beginner to experienced), crafter, or you just love a good side project, we are looking for people like you! Our project makers channel their inner creativity, hunt through our ReStore for RePurpose projects, and comb through Pinterest to find ideas to make fun and innovative RePurpose projects.

You can be a part of the fun by becoming a project maker! Here's how it works:

1. Create an item of your own. Do you have excess crafting or building materials around your home? Turn them into something fun and donate them to RePurpose for a Reason to be auctioned off during the event! To the right are a couple of hand-crafted projects from the past to inspire you. ​

2. Check Out an item or piece from the ReStore. Browse the ReStore for the perfect project(s) to check out, with a value of $70 or less. Take your item(s) home and "repurpose" them into something new!

When your item is ready, bring it back to the ReStore to be included in the silent auction. Just make sure to bring it back at least two weeks before the event so we can catalog and image your masterpiece.

Then, attend the event and bid on fabulous auction items!

    Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity

    Campaign to Support Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity

    Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
