Three Playhouses Built March 25

Playhouse Nomination

If you know a deserving family who would benefit from a donated playhouse, nominate them today.

Our Playhouse Build Program was officially launched on March 25. Over 25 volunteers, supporters, and staff came together to complete three playhouses in six hours.

Over the next month we'll be completing five more playhouses with Cal Poly organizations.

Read more about our Playhouse Build Program on our website, and visit our blog to see photos of the completed playhouses.

You can also view one of the finished playhouses at our Build With Us event May 4.

ReStore North County Now Under Construction

We're happy to announce that construction is underway at our new Paso Robles ReStore location. We've relocated from Tin City to 844 9th Street near downtown.

We are proud to partner with One Cool Earth by providing supplies and volunteer support for the installation of garden beds throughout the county. These flexible beds can be easily reconfigured to fit the space, so each school or community garden gets a customized fit.

Our first installation, pictured here, was recently completed at San Benito Elementary school in Atascadero.

Thank You to Our Recent Sponsors
