Habitat for Humanity ReStores are more than home improvement stores and donation centers for gently used furniture, appliances, home goods, and building materials. Habitat ReStores turn the sale of their high-quality, constantly changing inventory into opportunities for families to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through homeownership, housing and financial counseling, and home repairs. Shop with PurposeBecause of generous donations from individuals, companies, and retailers, ReStore is able to sell new or like-new products for a fraction of the retail price – diverting items from landfills and raising money for Habitat for Humanity.

Last year alone, ReStore diverted over 5,000 tons of waste from landfills and 100% of profits from sales directly benefited our construction projects. And by supporting ReStore, you can be a part of the solution to overflowing landfills and the affordable housing crisis.
