Do Good By Donating Your Unwanted Goods
In addition to giving a second life to things you no longer want, your donations of gently-used furniture, home furnishings, appliances, building materials, etc. have a direct impact on families in our community. That’s because the proceeds from our ReStore enable us to direct 100% of financial donations to our homebuilding fund and to pay our staff a living wage, including benefits. Pretty great, right?

Donating to our ReStore
Thank you, we greatly appreciate your consideration and donation to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores! Your donation helps fund our building affordable homes for families in need and is tax deductible. Our team will provide a receipt for your records.
We can only accept items we can repurpose or sell. (Our ReStore staff / truck team reserves the right to deny any items deemed not sellable in our ReStores.) Sometimes it is difficult to categorize unique donations, such as pianos, artwork, antiques, carousel horses, etc. so if you have an item you’d like to donate, but are unsure if we will accept it, please give us a call at (970) 945-9138 or email us. OurReStore staff is happy to answer your questions!
Drop off your donation
Monday-Saturday, 11am - 4pm
In-person donations are always welcome! To drop off your donation of goods, pull up to our Down Valley loading dock door and the ring bell—someone will come out to greet you. Please DO NOT leave items outside our gate, as we want to ensure you receive a donation receipt for your taxes.
Schedule FREE donation pick up
Our team is happy to come and pick up your donation free of charge if you live in the area. To arrange a donation, please fill out the form or email us directly at ReStorePickup@HabitatRoaringFork.org
