Our ReStore is committed to maintaining a high level of quality among the products we offer for resale and therefore cannot accept all potential donations. We must pay for any items that must be disposed, which reduces our ability to build more affordable homes in Waukesha County. We have the ability to refuse any donation at our discretion.

 

If your donation meets our criteria, please feel free to drop it off at our store. If it's too large for you to transport yourself, you may request a donation pick up.

 

Where do I deliver items I want to donate?
Our drop off center is on the side of the Habitat ReStore, located at 2120 E. Moreland Blvd. Unfortunately, we do not accept after hour donations. Items may get damaged, and we incur costs for disposing items.

 

Are items donated to the ReStore tax deductible?
All donations to the ReStore are 100% tax-deductible. You will receive a donation receipt upon donation for tax recording purposes.

 

Can I schedule a pickup of items I want to donate to the Restore?
Yes! We are able to pick up large items that do not fit in your vehicle. Call 262-662-6061, email ReStore@habitatwaukesha.org or click to request a donation pickup.
