The Home Improvement Store That Builds Homes

The Habitat OC 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. The Habitat OC ReStores rely on the donations of furniture, appliances, cabinets, doors, windows, lighting, flooring, home decor and other home improvement materials to support our mission of building affordable Habitat OC homes, offering a hand-up to hardworking families in need.


How to Donate

1. In Person Drop-Off

Drop-off donations are accepted at the Anaheim and Santa Ana ReStore locations Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. All items must be in good, clean and resellable condition. All drop-off items must be inspected and accepted prior to unloading.

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 are appreciated to help reduce the costs of providing a pick-up service.

2. Scheduled Pick-up

The Habitat OC ReStores offer a pick-up service for larger, multiple item donations that meet out guidelines. All items must be in good, clean and resellable condition. In order to make our pick-up service the most cost effective, we do ask for a voluntary monetary donation to help offset costs associated with providing the service. Please plan ahead as we are scheduling pick-ups about a week or so in advance.
