The station, located on Century Avenue next to North Central Mechanical, is operated by Habitat for Humanity for Langlade County volunteers. Hours, subject to change, are. Thursdays, 5 to 8 p.m., and Saturdays, 8 or 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The focus on the store will be to take donations of appliances, cabinets, countertops, building materials, flooring, furniture, lawn and gardening, tools, windows, lighting, kitchen and bathroom items and recycle them for new projects, generally at a fraction of the cost.

We are looking for donations from anyone, board member Tara Guelzow said. We have a list of items that will be posted at the store and on our Facebook page, but the easiest thing to do is call us at 715-627-7307 and ask. Also remember that since these items are to be donated, there are tax benefits.

Pick-up is also available.
