A passion for helping youth in the community brought Millersburg native, Adam Miller, home from Phoenix. With Jared Coblentz and Derrick Miller, he started Restoration Thrift, a shop dedicated to “restoring the lives of children.”
“All of our visions came together, and that’s how the store was birthed, really,” said Adam.
It opened its doors in Orrville during September of 2016 and now uses several Elliot sheds from JDM Structures as donation locations at Fairlawn Mennonite Church and Grace Mennonite Church in Berlin, Ohio.
“It’s great having the sheds out in the community, and they work really well,” Adam shared. “People can go to the sheds and drop donations off, instead of coming all the way to the store.”
The store benefits OHuddle, a faith-based youth mentoring program in Wooster and Orrville, Pure Gift of God in Sugarcreek, which provides support to families in the adoption process, and Aim Right Ministries in Phoenix, where Adam worked before returning home.
JDM spokesperson Rose Kleidon can’t imagine a better way to use one of the company’s sheds.
“It’s inspiring to see an organization like Restoration Thrift use a JDM barn for a great cause,” said Kleidon. “It keeps our team motivated, knowing that their structures are being used to help kids in need.”
