Habitat for Humanity volunteers have been salvaging the former Pizza Hut building in Forest City as Lichtsinn RV gets ready to tear down the building in order to expand the display surface at their RV facility.
“All of the salvaged items will be sold and all of that money goes directly back to Habitat for Humanity to build homes throughout North Iowa,” said Brian Lewerke, the Habitat for Humanity ReStore Manager for the Mason City location.
Salvaged items from the building include: cabinets, light fixtures, framing, appliances, countertops, dining booths, buffets, kitchen shelving, seating and much more.
“We knew that there would be some valuable items left behind and Habitat for Humanity was the obvious choice to come in to salvage the building due to their important efforts in the community,” said Heidi Thompson, Vice President and General Manager of Lichtsinn RV.
Habitat for Humanity of North Central Iowa serves those living in Cerro Gordo, Franklin, Hancock, Winnebago, Worth and Wright counties.
