                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, October 13, 2011

  Mr. SAM JOHNSON of Texas. Mr. Speaker, it is my privilege to 
recognize before the United States House of Representatives an 
outstanding charitable organization--North Collin County Habitat for 
Humanity, (NCC-Habitat)--on the occasion of the Grand Opening of its 
new facility in McKinney, Texas.
  Incorporated in 1992, NCC-Habitat's mission is to ``work in 
partnership with God and His people to develop communities by enabling 
families to achieve the dream of homeownership with dignity.'' Over its 
nearly twenty years of service to the communities of northern Collin 
County, this organization has built 64 homes for families in need.
  Many of the resources required to complete these projects are donated 
to or funded by the McKinney ReStore. Habitat for Humanity operates 
over 900 ReStores throughout the United States and Canada. These 
facilities are retail outlets, open to the public, which sell new and 
gently used building materials, furniture, and other home decor items.
  The McKinney ReStore operated by NCC-Habitat has been so successful 
that it needed to expand. Today marks the first day of business at the 
ReStore's new 40,000 square foot facility. The building also houses 
NCC-Habitat's office space.
  On behalf of the people of the Third Congressional District of Texas, 
I want to thank the great folks of NCC-Habitat for helping to build our 
community.
  Congratulations on your new facility. God bless you, and I salute 
you!
