Donations Accepted

Remodeling, cleaning out, downsizing or just getting organized? Consider donating your excess household goods and building materials to the Habitat ReStore. We’ll gladly take new and gently-used items off your hands and you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing they helped support local families and didn’t end up in the landfill. All of your donations are tax-deductible. 


For businesses, donating to the Habitat ReStore is a great way to move discontinued or excess stock, deal with gently used returns and show your customers that you care about the environment and your community. Plus, we’ll pick up your donated goods, which will save you time and money!

The Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, signed January 4, 2011, amends Section 1417 of the Safe Drinking Water Act (“SDWA”), and goes into effect January 4, 2014. This law reduces the allowable level of lead in plumbing products used to convey water for human consumption from 8.0% (where it stood since 1986) to 0.25% using a new method of lead content assessment. The law applies to the installation, sale, and resale of potable plumbing products and will impact all current inventory and future donations.
