Red Lobster remodel project to benefit Habitat for Humanity

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — If you like the nautical items featured in Red Lobster restaurants, Huntington WV Area Habitat for Humanity has a way for you to bring home some of the décor while helping out a good cause.

As part of a restaurant remodel, Red Lobster is donating furniture, art work and fixtures to the Huntington WV Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore, located at 240 Third Ave. in Huntington. Made possible by the restaurant’s parent company, the Darden Family of Restaurants, proceeds from all sales of these items will help Huntington WV Area Habitat for Humanity to fund the construction of homes for deserving families in need.

Some of the nautical-themed items are already in stock with more items scheduled to arrive throughout the remodeling process.

“Customers will have to come in early and often as these items are so special they won’t be around long,” said Habitat ReStore Manager JB Miller. “As a local broadcaster, I helped bring this restaurant to town 28 years ago, and now as a ReStore manager I’m getting it all back for a good cause. We’re just thrilled with this donation.”

Huntington WV Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

To schedule a pick up or for questions regarding types of donations accepted, please call the store at (304) 781-1333.
