We also offer a pick-up service for select large Habitat for Humanity ReStore donations. All pick-ups require the donated items to be in a garage or porch. Due to insurance and logistical reasons, drivers are not permitted to enter a residence. This includes condominiums and apartments. All Habitat for Humanity ReStore donations are accepted at the driver’s discretion.

In addition to helping to reuse and recycle, your Habitat ReStore donations are tax deductible. Click here for a Donation Receipt.

Make a Financial Donation

At Habitat for Humanity, we build. We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere should have a healthy, affordable place to call home. When a family helps build or improve a place they can call home, they are also building a better community, a better life for themselves.

Your donation will help families in need of a decent place to build long-term financial security. With an affordable, stable home, families have more to spend on food, medicine, child care, education and other essentials. Your support can help us do more in all the many ways that Habitat builds.

Thanks to you, Habitat is transforming lives in our community and around the world.
