1821 ReStore Shopper Program


1821 ReStore Shopper Program

The Guardian ad Litem Association of Buncombe County (GALABC) has begun a collaboration with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s Meadow Road ReStore, and Two Men and A Truck to support youth in DHHS’ Foster Care 18 to 21 Program. 

The program offers young adults’ opportunities to transition to independence with child welfare agency supervision. When a participant establishes a household and needs furnishings and delivery assistance, an 1821 ReStore Shopper voucher is created by DHHS for one time use at the Meadow Road ReStore.  It is estimated that 12 to 15 young adults will be helped annually as they work to establish independence and a permanent home.

The GALABC is very grateful to our partners and encourages people to donate to the ReStore when possible and support Two Men and a Truck when local or long-distance moving services are needed.

Dear friends of the Guardian ad Litem Association,

The GALA board is proud to announce that Chiesa Italian Restaurant has named the GALA as their Community Partner for the month of July. The staff will actively be soliciting donations for our program, and the restaurant will also be donating a portion of their proceeds for July.

Let’s please support both the GALA and Chiesa by making reservations at Chiesa through their website when you decide to dine out in July. http://www.chiesaavl.com.

When you dine, please let the wait staff know that you are a supporter of GALA. Please consider inviting your friends and family to Chiesa for a meal in July and possibly make a donation to GALA in the community partner box at the restaurant knowing that the restaurant will match donations. Lastly, when you have a great dining experience, and we know that you will, please write a nice review on Trip Advisor or open table for them.

Thank you for helping the Guardian ad Litem Association and the children of Buncombe County!
