When renovating or remodeling your kitchen, you may wonder what we do with your old cabinets. They are most likely in good condition, and while they may not be the style you like (hence the renovation), it may seem wasteful to just throw them away or recycle them.
At KC Cabinetry, we’re committed to not only helping you design a kitchen remodel as unique as you are, but we also strive to create a community and world that helps others and is sustainable. When we renovate a kitchen, we make sure to carefully remove the kitchen cabinets so there is little to no damage and donate them to Bud’s Warehouse.
Belay Enterprises started in 1995 with the mind-set of helping those in need and giving them the chance to start over again. In their mission statement, they strive to “partner with area churches to develop businesses to employ and job-train individuals rebuilding lives from addiction, homelessness, prison, and/or poverty, to strengthen families and neighborhoods”. They created Bud’s Warehouse, which stands for Building Unity and Dignity through Service, in order to emphasize their mission statement through a not-for-profit job training program. They employ those that are in need: the poor, the addicted, the homeless, and give them the skills through their job training that will help them to continue to succeed in life.
Bud’s Warehouse sells home improvement supplies that are donated to them through business such as ourselves and homeowners. They sell them at bargain prices, and the profits go towards helping those in needs.
As this is a donation, the cabinets and other house building materials such as windows and interior doors that we take out are eligible for tax deduction. You will receive credit for this donation as well as photo documentation.
