Should I Donate This to ReStore?

When cleaning, remodeling or moving, you often run into household items you no longer use, but are still in great condition. Whether it’s items like the windows you just replaced, a couch still in good condition or a light fixture you updated, you may wonder, “Should I donate this?”

While you may not be able to donate certain items like mattresses, Habitat Restores generally accept a variety of items. For instance, used household items and home goods from countertops to cabinets, sinks to toilets are just a few of the types of donations you can offer a Habitat ReStore.
