At ReStore, we value and encourage donations of new or gently used furniture, appliances and building supplies by individuals. It’s always great to see people avoid more trash in our landfills and give their possessions a chance for a new life as someone else’s treasure. We’ve seen great stories about shopping at ReStore lately, including how a new owner can personalize an item in our ReImagine at ReStore feature and the story of an old piano that is thought to have entertained many at New York’s famous Cotton Club finding a new home.
But just as important as these donations from individuals are the donations that come from our local businesses. We have new doors, cabinets, tile and many more items that have never been used available at ReStore, thanks to the generosity of local businesses. So if your business is able to make a tax-deductible donation of building supplies, appliances or furniture, please consider donating to ReStore. Or if you’re in the market to purchase one of those items, remember to check out our supply. You’ll be advancing ReStore’s mission to support Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to help families realize the dream of homeownership.
