Donate to ReStore

The Habitat ReStore depends on donations from local businesses, contractors, manufacturers, and individuals to provide most of its inventory. The profits from the Habitat ReStore help Habitat for Humanity build and repair homes in the community.

The Habitat ReStore accepts donations of most items found in home improvement stores. All items must be clean, stain-free, and in good, working condition. We reserve the right to change our list of donation-worthy items and conditions at any time based on inventory, floor space, and customer demand.

It’s easy to make a donation

If the items fit in your vehicle, you can drop off them at the store, 7612 S. Westnedge Ave., Portage, MI.

The drive through donation loop at the rear of the store makes this a quick and easy process.

Drop off your donation during store hours:

Monday – Friday: 9:30am – 5pm
Saturday: 10am – 4pm

Please do not leave donations when the store is closed!

To schedule a pick-up of large items that will not fit in your vehicle, call the Habitat ReStore Donation Hotline at 269-381-5523.

All items must be easily accessible on the ground floor and ready for pick-up when our truck arrives. If you would like to make a voluntary, tax-deductible contribution to help offset the cost of operating our truck, our drivers will provide a receipt.
