Many Thanks to the Volunteers of Fall 2013!

The RE Store couldn’t do as much as it does without the help of volunteers and students.  We’ve had an especially good crop this fall at our Bellingham store and wanted to take a moment during this holiday season to highlight a few we are thankful for:

sally and susan

Sally Hileman and Susan Marshall (above) are regulars at the Fountain (restaurant across the street) and after sitting and sharing some coffee looking out towards our building they decided that our landscaping could use a face lift, which they swiftly volunteered to do.  These ladies were a ton of fun to have around, and plan on coming back this spring to continue to maintain and add to the flower beds.

professional communications students

The students of Professor Diane Blietz-Hertberg’s Professional Communications 318 class were tasked with studying our communications within the workplace.  This project included a report about our internal communications, a Safe Lifting Techniques report, and creating a bathroom vignette window display for us.  Students involved in the project: Ali El-husseini, Samantha Stahle, Jennifer Conn, and Chad Spady.

 Jenrri and Greg

Jenrri Hough (above left) is a long-term volunteer that has been awesome helping with many things around the store, and Greg George (above, right) has been our much appreciated paint guru of late.

Thank you so much to these volunteers and students, as well as the countless others not named here but just as important, that have helped us in 2013 in both Bellingham and Seattle!  For volunteer opportunities, contact our stores here.

Provide Flood Relief

Rebuilding efforts from Whatcom County's historical flooding is just beginning. We have the opportunity to provide our community members with affordable, readily available materials from The RE Store. Together, we can generate $10,000 in rebuilding efforts. From now until January 28th, buy a flood relief gift card to The RE Store and we will match your gift to double your impact.
