Hook Agency: We Volunteer for a Couple Reasons

Guest Blogger: Bryce Hoban from Hook Agency shares their ReStore volunteer experience.

First, it’s a great way to give back to the community. As a business, we not only have an obligation to help our clients succeed, but we also should be working towards making the community around us better as well. Everyone here takes pride in being a Minnesotan and living in the Twin Cities and we want to make sure we are doing our part to improving our home.

But why go to the big box stores for your lawn and garden needs when you can find everything you need at ReStore at much better prices?

Two Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity homes were featured in this year's Minneapolis St. Paul Home Tour.
