Donation Guidelines & Accepted Items

Read below for a full list of items we accept and how to donate your used furniture, appliances, home and building supplies to the store that gives back!

ReStore Donation Guidelines

We have developed these Accepted Items and Donation Guidelines to help ensure that we remain focused on merchandise and materials that matter to our shoppers and help our ReStore operation achieve it’s goal of helping to build homes.

We kindly ask that all donated items are clean, in good working order, complete, and free of stains, tears, or damage that renders the items unable to perform as originally intended.  Please note that our donations team reserves the right to refuse your donation if your item(s) do not meet our guideline requirement and guidelines may change without notice depending on our capacity.

Making a Donation to the ReStore is Easy and FREE
