What Stuff Should You Donate to Habitat ReStore?

Decluttering your home is a great way to breathe some new life into your place and finally surround yourself with items that spark joy in you and you tend to use. As you get to better the effects of your personal environment, it’s also important to consider what you’re going to do with all the stuff that you’ve decluttered. The ideal answer would be to donate it, of course. That said, donating to Habitat for Humanity ReStore is simple, quick, and easy, and it will allow you to support a good cause as you free yourself from unnecessary clutter. If you’re wondering what you can donate to Habitat, keep on reading. 

Furniture, Houseware, and Décor

Most people find that a range of different décor and houseware bits and pieces as well as furniture only make a mess at their home. Fortunately, donations to Habitat for Humanity ReStore can help you get rid of these unwanted items and at the same time help others spruce up their home for a more affordable price. Just keep in mind that the items have to be in a relatively good condition as we don’t accept scrap material. 

Home Appliances

It’s also possible to donate your home appliances to Habitat, but keep in mind that we only accept appliances that are less than 10 years old. If your items are older than that, you can recycle them.

Cabinetry and Kitchen/Bath Fixtures

Turn your old cabinets and kitchen/bath fixtures into Habitat for Humanity ReStore donations, but only if the items are in a relatively good condition and come with all of the necessary hardware. If that’s not the case, you can recycle your items or maybe even find a fun way to repurpose them. 

Building Materials

When it comes to building materials, as well as flooring and tiles, it’s very important to note that Habitat accepts only fully functional and complete packages. Scraps and random pieces of material are not a good choice for a donation. 

Lighting and Lamps

Just like furniture and décor pieces, all sorts of lighting solutions and lamps are a very popular donation that many people are interested in once displayed. However, if you find that the lighting and lamps you wish to declutter don’t work at all, have cracks in the glass, or are completely unframed, proceed to your local recycling center. 

Doors and Windows

When doors and windows are concerned, the situation is rather similar. We’re happy to accept these items as donations, but only if there are no obvious damages to the doors and windows in question. The items have to be functional, with adequate hardware, and no cracks or missing glass. 

As we try to change the world for the better, we hope that you’ll join our cause. The sales we make from your donations to Habitat for Humanity ReStore will be used to build and repair the homes within your community and across the globe. If you find you have some stuff you don’t need even though they’re in a good condition, don’t hesitate to donate them and make a difference yourself.
