If it’s BUSTED, we can’t fix it

TAX RECEIPT

Most donations are tax deductible. You will receive a receipt for your donation to use for tax purposes. Habitat’s ReStore will not estimate the value of your donation; you will do that.  

Questions about your donation? Just call (614) 364-7028.
All donations are accepted or rejected at our discretion based on condition of the item and re-sale potential.  In order to utilize our volunteer pick-up service, all items must be organized, removed from the home, and placed in a garage or outside. (For liability reasons, we cannot remove/disconnect items from your home.)

The Restore Cycle

See How It Works

The Habitat ReStore plays an important role in the effort to eliminate substandard housing.  Your donations are sold and the proceeds offset most of Habitat MidOhio's administrative costs-so cash contributions go directly toward building homes for deserving families.

Wanna help out?

If all this is striking a benevolent chord, come lend a hand.  Making a difference is hard work, we can always use volunteers.
