This committee reaches out to constituencies that donate to the ReStore via trade groups and professional associations and encourages the creation of formal partnerships. The committee oversees initiatives to increase donations and sales from individuals. It also provides financial oversight.
This committee raises awareness and educates area youth, both within homeowner families and in schools and church youth groups, about the mission of Flower City Habitat for Humanity.
