Habitat ReStores are home improvement stores that accept small and large donations of new or gently used furniture, appliances, housewares, building materials and more. Proceeds from the sales of these items help Habitat’s work in your community and around the world.

How Does Donating to ReStore Help Families?

The money raised by Habitat ReStores helps families build a decent and affordable place to call home. When the items you donate to ReStore are sold, the money helps families achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better future.

What Can You Donate to ReStore?

Habitat ReStore accepts new and gently used appliances, furniture, building materials, household goods and more from individuals and companies. Each ReStore is unique, and many locations also accept items outside these categories.

Need to Donate Stuff?

Remodeling, cleaning, down-sizing or just getting organized? Whatever your project, don’t let the items you no longer need end up in your local landfill.

Habitat ReStores divert hundreds of tons from landfills each year, accepting hard-to-dispose-of items including new and used furniture, appliances and surplus building materials. In many cases, pickup service is provided for large items.

Best of all, proceeds from the sale of these donated goods help families build a foundation for the future.

How Do You Donate Goods to Habitat ReStore?

Habitat ReStore staff and volunteers make the donation process as simple as possible. You can always donate goods in person, and many Habitat ReStores offer free pickup of large items. Here’s how the process works.

*Note that it is important to call your ReStore and confirm donation hours, which can sometimes differ from store hours.

  • Contact the nearest Habitat ReStore to let them know what items you have available to donate
  • Determine the best method for you to donate your items
