Our very own Extreme Home Makeover, this affiliate of the international organization has built more than 36 homes for deserving families right here in the San Gabriel Valley. And it’s also helped build houses from Mexico to Sri Lanka. Volunteer aid of every kind is put to excellent use, from making lunch for the construction crews to helping build a house yourself (no experience needed). Home improvers, make sure to check out the newish Pasadena ReStore at 770 N. Fair Oaks Ave., where you can find great deals on recycled doors, windows, sinks, lumber, furniture and other home needs. Not only is it full of vintage finds and bargains, but the proceeds support Habitat. There’s another ReStore next door to the main office in Azuza.
