When a family business closes its doors, it can be a nostalgic ordeal, to say nothing of the logistical burden. But for Andy Liu, third generation in his family at the helm of Royola Pacific, it’s a time for looking forward, for optimism and altruism, thanks to a partnership with the Habitat for Humanity ReStores.
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore accepts donations from a variety of sources. Families and individuals donate used furniture and appliances, and local businesses donate excess inventory like filing cabinets and light fixtures. ReStore also accepts donations as large as warehouses full of home improvement goods, which might otherwise go to a liquidator.
