Donate Materials

Your ReStore donations

are making a difference, one house at a time.

Just because they're called landfills doesn't mean we need to fill them up. Don't throw it away - let us put it to good use! Habitat ReStore accepts both new and used building materials and furniture that are in good, usable condition. Your TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation to ReStore helps build strength, stability, and self-reliance for area families in need of decent and affordable housing.

RESTORE DONATIONS

YOU CAN DONATE TO RESTORE...


At Habitat ReStore we accept donations of new & gently used residential building supplies and furniture that WE determine will sell in our retail stores. Using the profits from the sale of these items we then fund the building and rehabilitation of houses in our community. With a few exceptions we look for items you would find in a “Big Box” home improvement store. See the list of items we accept.

Habitat for Humanity operates five convenient locations in the Kansas City metro area that will accept your donation.

Our store donation hours are:
Monday – Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

We look forward to seeing you at Habitat for Humanity ReStore, the area’s low cost provider of building materials, lumber, kitchen, baths and hardware.
