Say Hello to the Lakefield ReStore

- Opening Summer 2024

We are thrilled to announce that Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region is opening a Habitat ReStore in Lakefield this summer! Located at 3001 Lakefield Rd, the new Lakefield Habitat for Humanity ReStore will help us continue our mission of supporting local families and individuals through affordable homeownership while expanding our ReStore’s reach across our region. We’re looking forward to being able to offer local Selwyn residents a place to donate and purchase quality new and used furniture, all in support of a great cause.
