About 20 United Parcel Service employees are volunteering their off-hours to help remove countertops and cabinets that will be resold by Shop Demo Depot in Mt. Pleasant, a subsidiary of Westmoreland Community Action.
The four-story building contains reusable items ranging from ceramic tile to cabinets to bathroom fixtures.
Coolers in the building will be donated to the Westmoreland County Food Bank, said Jen Miele, Excela’s vice president of marketing and community relations.
Senior Vice President Ron Ott said reusing the materials will reduce landfill space while supporting Community Action.
“We are pleased to have such an outlet for items that still have value,” he said.
“This project is a perfect example of how businesses, nonprofits and communities can work together for the common good,” said Bobbi Watt Geer, president & CEO of United Way.
