Every donation helps us provide affordable housing for families in need
“Giving back” takes on a whole new meaning at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, a discount home improvement center. Whether you're a homeowner, business owner, contractor or builder, it begins when you donate your new or gently used, surplus or salvaged materials to Habitat for Humanity. You can drop off your donation at one of our two ReStore locations, or for larger items, you can schedule a free pick up! All donations are resold at prices far below retail, and you may even receive a tax deduction in return. Everyone benefits!

Federal Law: As of January 4, 2014, Habitat for Humanity Affiliates cannot (i) install, (ii) sell, or (iii) resell "pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings or fixtures" that are not "lead free." The new definition of "lead free" requires that the product have less than 0.25% lead content based on a new statutory formula that factors the total number of components and the wetted surface area of each component. Products subject to this law include: pipes, fittings, and fixtures that may provide water for human consumption (drinking, teeth brushing, food preparation).
