ReStore Donations FAQ

We appreciate your interest in donating to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore! Our mission is achieved through the generosity and cooperation of many people like you.  ReStore accepts donations of building materials, furniture, appliances, and household goods.

Donations can be new or used, but all items must be in good repair and in saleable condition.

Q: Can I bring my donations to the ReStore?
A:
Yes. Donations are accepted at the ReStore Tuesday through Saturday 10 am – 5 pm. Please drive into our gated donation drop off area and a member of our team will meet you to accept your donation. Please refer to the Donations Guidelines to view the items we can and cannot accept.

Q: Do you pick up donations?
A:
Yes. However, due to the fact that we try to limit costs as much as possible, we reserve pickups for large items such as furniture, appliances, etc. If you would like to schedule a pickup, please call 508-439-7655 ext. 128 or email us at restoredonations@habitatmwgw.org. Please allow 24-48 hours for response, pick-ups are typically scheduled 2-3 weeks in the future.

We do our best to assess the acceptability of donations when they are called in, but our drivers make the final decision whether or not to accept a donation at the time of pickup. If we pick up a donation that is not saleable, we end up throwing it out and incurring disposal costs that take away from our mission.

Q: Why won’t you take furniture with slight damage?
A:
We resell all of the items that are donated to the ReStore, so we cannot accept items that are stained, torn, or broken because they have no resale value.

Q: Are my donations tax deductible?
A:
All donations to the ReStore are tax deductible. We will provide a form to fill out and keep for your records. Please note: by law we cannot assign a value to the items you donate. You will need to consult an appraiser, or visit www.irs.gov for more information.
