Need to donate stuff?

Remodeling, cleaning, down-sizing or just getting organized? Whatever your project, don’t let the items you no longer need end up in your local landfill.

Our Habitat Stores divert hundreds of tons from landfills each year, accepting hard-to-dispose-of items including new and used furniture, appliances and surplus building materials. In many cases, pickup service is provided for large items.

Best of all, proceeds from the sale of these donated goods help families build a foundation for the future.

Need to donate lots of stuff?

Our staff is here to make gift-in-kind donations as easy as possible. We can arrange one-time donations of excess stock, or establish long-term partnerships with recurring donations.
