About Re-Source York

About Re-Source York

OUR MISSION:

Inspiring our community by being environmentally and socially responsible.

Re-Source York, founded in 2002, is a nonprofit organization operating retail stores to sell donated building supplies and home furnishings to the public, providing jobs for people needing vocational support, and contributing financial support of emergency homeless services for York County families.

Our home improvement store – packed with everything from nuts, bolts and hinges to windows, doors, bathroom fixtures and full kitchen cabinet set-ups – is a first stop for anyone with a DIY or professional renovation project on the horizon.

Our home goods store is the place to shop when searching for home décor. You can find couches and chairs, dressers, desks, and tables, bed frames, dinnerware and glassware, and all sorts of tchotchkes, toys, wall art, books and games.

In addition to bringing significant savings to our greater York area family of customers, Re-Source York is committed to our long-standing partnership with Bell Socialization Services. Re-Source supports Bell in two ways: by making quarterly financial contributions that directly support Bell Family Shelter and by employing participants in Bell’s vocational rehabilitation program who are looking to restart their work lives in a supportive environment.

1

First, we accept donations of materials, furniture, supplies, appliances and more from the community, keeping reusable goods out of our landfills.

2

Then, our team cleans and sorts everything into two stores for resale – Home Improvement or Home Goods. The donated items are sold at a fraction of the cost of big box stores and makeup 97% of Re-Source York’s income. We help our customers discover a diamond in the rough turning discarded items into treasures.

Each month, a portion of sales from each location is set aside to donate to Bell Socialization Services, specifically designated to Bell Family Shelter, where it empowers York County families experiencing homelessness.

Meet the Team

Kareen Stahl

Assistant Manager, Home Improvement

Kareen has been a fixture at the home improvement store for the last 8 years. Her favorite part about working for Re-Source York is learning new skills and being able to help customers with their projects by suggesting ideas and different materials. Some people may be surprised to learn she is a Star Wars and superheroes superfan and loves to create and build things herself.

Bryan Carr

Sales Associate, Home Furnishings

Bryan is a people-person, which makes him a great team member at our Home Furnishings location. He loves to interact with our customers and help them find just the right item to complete their home décor project. He is notably a helpful person and feels the York community gives above and beyond to help others. 

LaShon Davis

Donations & Deliveries Associate

LaShon is new to the Re-Source York team, but not to York. He loves meeting new people as he picks up donations and delivers purchases to customers. LaShon credits his love of the York community to his family who make it incredibly special. 

Dalton Greenlee

Sales Associate, Home Improvement

Dalton has been with Re-Source York for more than a decade and is known for “getting things done.” From donation sorting to merchandising to customer service, Dalton does it all (in fact, he can’t stand still)! He loves living in York because of the sense of community, and how close it is to other cities.

Eric Grove

Sales Associate, Home Improvement

Eric is a positive, upbeat team member who loves helping customers at the Home Improvement store. He can be found doing inventory, stocking shelves, or helping customers in the showroom. He loves animals, so you may find him with Buddy the Cat at times! 

Jenna Hopper

Sales Associate, Home Furnishings

Jenna appreciates how her role at Re-Source York helps her feel connected to the York community. Wise beyond her years, Jenna loves to give back to York, and feels her position at the home furnishing store helps her make an impact.

Tyrone Miller, Jr.

Donations & Deliveries Associate

Tyrone is one of the smiling faces you may see when you drop off a donation or have a purchase delivered to your home. Tyrone loves meeting new people and helping them complete their home improvement project with items from the Re-Source York stores. He, like many of our team members, loves the family feel of the York community.

Randy Williams

Sales Associate, Home Improvement

Randy has been a part of the Re-Source York family for 3 years. The most rewarding part of his job is seeing all the unique items that are donated and then go home with an excited customer. Randy, a native of York City, loves that York is home to so many different, creative people.

Buddy the Cat

Security

Buddy is an honorary team member at Re-Source York, and while not much help stocking shelves or moving inventory, he is great at begging for treats or seeking attention from our customers. When he’s not out hunting behind the store, he is most likely napping in a sunny spot on the front steps or in the store. Don’t fall for his needy meows – he’s a spoiled little kitty!

Board of Directors

Re-Source York is grateful for the dedication of the all-volunteer board of directors. Re-Source York board members are community leaders who are passionate about the organization’s mission and bring a wide variety of experience to the team.
