On Friday, the McMahon Marketing team and Norman Mayor, Cindy Rosenthal, helped paint part of the newest mural on Main St. for the Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The mural now graces the north wall of the new ReStore building on the corner of Main and Berry in Norman, set to open July 31st. 

This mural project is more than painting a pretty picture on the wall of a building. It is an opportunity to create something from nothing and to leave a mark. It is a chance to add beauty and character to this community, and, most importantly, to give hope to those who have none. 

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, Christian organization that builds houses for those in need. With 1,400 local affiliates in the United States and over 70 international organizations around the world, they have helped more than 1 million families since 1976. We’re proud to be working side by side with this amazing organization. Together as a community, we can work to improve the poverty situation right here in Norman by supporting Cleveland County Habitat for Humanity, whose mission is to eliminate substandard housing. 

The new ReStore building in Norman will soon take part in this incredible legacy of philanthropic giving. The ReStore is a nonprofit home improvement store and donation center that sells furniture, appliances, home goods and other materials at a fraction of retail. The proceeds from the ReStore benefit our county’s continual mission to build homes, communities, and hope.

“It’s difficult to put into words the importance of this store to us and to the community, specifically those who need our help,” said Habitat for Humanity spokesperson Liz Barfield. “Not only will it draw attention to our new location, which will, in turn, increase our sales and donations, and therefore help more people in our community.”

In painting this mural, we indirectly joined Habitat for Humanity’s incredible legacy of providing hope and love.
