BILLINGS- The Billings Habitat for Humanity is trying to get back on its feet after a November fire ripped through its Restore location.

Heavy smoke damaged contents inside and shut down the business.

Now Habitat is looking for a new space.

This was the scene back in late November when that fire damaged the Re-store.. and two other businesses.

Executive Director Jim Wooleyhand says the organization is losing $2,000 a day in donations because there’s nowhere to put them.

He says those donations are crucial to the community.

Wooleyhand joined Ed McIntosh on Montana this Morning hoping there is a space out in Billings where they can start to rebuild their building materials collection.

“So that’s kind of where our focus is with the ReStore, but I guarantee we will be back bigger, stronger than ever. And our administrative offices are up and running, so our program is still continuing. We are still building homes, we are still making a difference out there in the community for families living in poverty, substandard housing,” said Wooleyhand.

And KTVQ is helping.

Check back on Thursday for a link for where you can donate money to the organization.
