The Home Improvement Store That Builds Homes
The Habitat for Humanity of Orange County ReStores are non-profit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell quality new and gently used home improvement items to the public at discounted prices. Print list of items that you can donate to ReStore.
The Habitat ReStores rely on the donations of furniture, appliances, cabinets, doors, windows, lighting, flooring, home decor and other home improvement materials to support the mission of building safe, decent, affordable homes for purchase by limited-income Orange County families in need of a hand-up.
Please note: whenever possible, if you are able to fit items for donation into your car, or have a friendly neighbor with a truck, donation drop-offs at our Santa Ana and Anaheim ReStore locations are much appreciated to help reduce the costs of providing a pick-up service.
