Updated Donation Guidelines

We here at ReStore would like to thank everyone who has provided us with excellent donations over the years.  Your donations lead to our success. In order to ensure that our merchandise is in good condition and ready to sell we’ve created updated Donation Guidelines.  Please see below:

Donation Guidelines:

Items may be dropped off Monday – Saturday from 10am to 4pm to Habitat ReStore in Gaithersburg, MD. For larger items, please contact the ReStore donation office at (301)947-3302 or by email at ReStore@habitat-mc.org to schedule a pick-up.  All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Legal restrictions prevent us from accepting some items and we do not accept items that are structurally broken.  Please clean items before donating them to ReStore.  Also, we have limited storage capacity and may be unable to receive certain items.  If we are unable to accept your donation, we’d be happy to provide you with a list of other donation and disposal centers that may be able to assist you.

Thank you again for thinking of ReStore!
