Donate to the ReStore

Your donations will be offered for sale to the public at our ReStores, providing crucial income to carry out Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build homes, communities, and hope. Because we are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, we will give you a charitable gift receipt for the items you have donated.

How to Donate:

1. Drop Off When Stores Are Open

  • Donation Hours are Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and Saturday from 9am to 4pm.

  • We accept items at all six of our ReStores, you can find your closest ReStore on our Locations page

  • Dropping off items we cannot use and leaving items after hours increases our operating costs and creates an unsafe environment for our staff and customers.

2. Schedule a Donation Pick Up:

To schedule your free residential donation pick up through one of our Donation Coordinators, please call Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or Sat 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at 513-721-GIVE (4483). PLEASE BE PATIENT- If our schedulers are busy, please leave a message.

Priority pick-ups will occur within 48-72 hours and will be subject to a fee.

To schedule your free business donation pickup, please contact Mike Moore-Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm at 513-482-5655 or email

Once you have scheduled a  pick-up, please note it on your calendar. On your pick-up day, our driver will call to let you know when he or she is on their way. A donation of $10 or more to offset delivery expenses and support the Habitat for Humanity mission is appreciated but is not required. If you prefer, you may make a donation securely online here.

For the safest, most efficient pick-ups, please follow these guidelines:

  • Have all materials available on ground level (i.e. garage or driveway; if needed, ask a relative or neighbor to help you put it there)

  • Please mark all items “Habitat for Humanity ReStore”

  • We cannot accept hazardous materials and we are unable to haul away any trash


Thank you for helping us to help others with your generous donation!
