INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - As a vital fundraising arm of Indian River Habitat for Humanity, having raised funds to build some 54 Habitat houses in the county, the Habitat Home Center ReStore relies on a variety of partnerships.

These include the hard-working home center volunteer team, the people and businesses that donate items and, of course, devoted shoppers who know great bargains and great prices when they see them.

Recently, the home center was fortunate to have established a new partnership, with the local PODS franchise.

Joe Lourcey manages PODS of Melbourne and Port St. Lucie, a moving and storage business, which features special containers which can be moved, loaded, unloaded, placed, stored etc., to accommodate all sorts of items, sizes, distances, locations and time frames.

To help the home center, Mr. Lourcey donated the use of PODS to collect, transfer and store very large, multi-load donations of furniture and other items, from an Olive Garden remodeling deconstruction job.

PODS driver Jason Wallace also operates the engineered container structure for loading, unloading, transporting and placing the POD unit, which is aptly named POD-Zilla.

Altogether, the PODS operation allows Home Center ReStore manager Dave Sneed to efficiently receive, briefly store and unload the generous Olive Garden donations.

Since May, PODS has donated transport and storage for the Habitat Home Center ReStore amounting to more than $1,500.
