(Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.) - As future residents at Devonshire at PGA National select an apartment home at the Palm Beach Gardens retirement community, they are able to make a variety of interior selections for their new home from paint color to new appliances to lighting options.  In turn, older appliances and fixtures in the apartment are often removed and replaced with new selections per an incoming resident’s preferences.  As a result, a beneficial community partnership has been established between Devonshire and Habitat for Humanity ReStore of Palm Beach County.

“When a new resident chooses the Devonshire lifestyle, our goal is to ensure they truly feel at home, starting with their own apartment,” said Michelle Wartgow, Sales Associate at Devonshire.  “Incoming residents have the opportunity to select new features in their apartment home, which allows us in turn to donate formerly used appliances and fixtures in the apartment to Habitat for Humanity ReStore.”

This year, Devonshire has already donated more than 100 appliances to Habitat for Humanity ReStore from refrigerators and dishwashers to washing machines and microwaves.  The organization also removes and conveys other apartment items like countertops, window treatments, and lighting fixtures.  Habitat for Humanity ReStore sells new and gently used donations, providing a more affordable avenue for home improvement projects and simultaneously keeping the items out of landfills.

“We truly appreciate our relationship with Devonshire at PGA National,” said Peter Gates, Director of Retail Operations at Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County.  “We know that our partnership will continue to grow and be a driving force in helping us to provide affordable housing to those in need in Palm Beach County.”
