The residents of Springfield Illinois and surrounding communities have a new building material and home improvement resource available to them. Capitol Reuse Center located at 2130 E Clearlake Ave in Springfield has opened its doors to the public.
Capitol Reuse Center, a subsidiary of Youth Fair Change, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization that provides individuals, as well as other nonprofit organizations, with the opportunity to purchase new and slightly used building materials and supplies at deep discounts. These discounts are made possible by diverting usable materials from landfills while offering donors all allowable tax incentives for their contributions. The organization’s focus is to provide the youth of today with a fair chance for a safer and more environmentally friendly future.
“Having lived and worked in the Springfield community for decades, my family and I felt privileged when the nonprofit organization Youth Fair Chance, Inc. offered us the opportunity to open their fourth location in our city, “says Terry Woodcock, Managing Director of Capitol Reuse Center. “While our inventory consists primarily of hardware, tools, windows, doors, paint, plumbing supplies, flooring, and lighting; clients can also count on finding interesting arts and crafts items, holiday and party supplies, home decorating items, fabric, and small appliances. Inventory changes daily, so frequent visits are encouraged. We hope to provide affordable resources that will contribute to the revitalization of developmentally neglected and economically challenged areas of the city.”
