Donating your renovation materials keeps functional — and often desirable — items out of the landfill.  If anything is a constant in home improvement, it’s the trash.

Amy Dickinson: Dear Readers: The week after Christmas is traditionally a sort of bloated rest period for many, where we recover from the busy holiday season by taking stock, tidying up and planning our new year diet and fitness regimen — from the couch. For many, this week marks a pause. A sigh. An exhale. But this year is not like other years. We have not been traveling, partying, studying in crowded lecture halls or playing with our school friends. We have not been worshiping together, visiting our elders or going to movies, concerts and theater. We have been hunkered down, many of us out of work, exhausted from the altered lifestyle none of us anticipated, and we are yearning, so deeply, to hug — and to be embraced in return.

Americorps VISTA provides Habitat support - Door County Daily News Posted 12/26/20 by Tim Kowols Jerry Phelps knew he was going to be emotional last week when Door County Habitat for Humanity dedicated its 43rd home because as he put it, he always is on dedication day. Phelps served as a volunteer building the home as a member of the Americorps VISTA program. VISTA stands for Volunteers in Service to America and the organization has partnered with Habitat for Humanity affiliates in Wisconsin to help others while building on their own skills for their career. It was the 31st dedication Phelps was a part of after previously serving with a Habitat for Humanity affiliate in Durham, North Carolina. Speaking at the dedication ceremony, Phelps told the crowd that the number of houses an affiliate builds in a year does not make or break an organization.
