Donate to Habitat for Humanity Capital Region ReStores

Remodeling, cleaning out, downsizing or just getting organized? Consider donating your excess household goods and building materials to the Habitat ReStores. 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 ReStores are 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.

If you wish to make a monetary donation to Habitat for Humanity Capital Region, you can do that here. Thanks!
