Logan Heights charity overstocked with home wares

Rugs, sinks, locks, doors, deep-fat fryers...

Rebuilding Together San Diego's Logan Heights warehouse is jammed to the ceiling with rugs, cabinets, light fixtures and wiring, doors and windows, and even deep-fat fryers for turkey and the oil used to cook them. And the nonprofit is selling off much of the goods during the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day at the warehouse at 2011 Franklin Street.

"Sometimes we leave for a few minutes, but we put a sign up on the gate and let people know when we'll be back," the manager said. "We're basically selling things at the restocking value."

The charity has a “pass-through” program for goods to improve homes for low-income families: they pay what the donor would charge to restock the item.

Rebuilding Together used to be active in organizing Christmas in April events, but since it began reorganizing last year, it mainly has programs that lend tools and donates supplies to groups who in turn organize their own volunteer projects to fix up homes.

But right now, the warehouse is jammed with donated fixtures and equipment, including a compressor, dozens of sinks, faucets, door locks, and more that need to go. The money will be reinvested in Rebuilding Together programs, the manager said.
