Louisville’s Habitat for Humanity will uproot 6,000 square feet of hardwood flooring from the stage of the Kentucky Center’s Whitney Hall this weekend.
The Kentucky Center is donating the flooring to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which will sell it to raise money for the organization.
Habitat for Humanity’s Director of Marketing Dale Douthat says the project benefits both his organization and the community at large.
“We turn around and sell those materials to the public, which saves money on stuff they would otherwise pay full retail price for, and then the money that they spend with us goes right back into building houses for our community, helping create affordable housing, which is a problem everywhere these days,” he said.
Douthat says the sale of the flooring could generate up to $20,000 for Habitat projects. The Whitney Hall stage is getting a new floor.
