DONATE TO THE
HABITAT OC RESTORE

Habitat OC ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell quality new and gently-used home furniture, appliances, and building materials to the public at discounted prices. The sale of your donated items helps fund the construction of affordable Habitat OC homes. YOU are helping hardworking, limited-income families gain strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.

 

Donations are tax-deductible and quality reusable items are diverted from the landfill.

How to Donate

In Person Drop-off

Drop-off donations are accepted at the Anaheim Habitat OC ReStore location Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and at the Laguna Niguel Donation Center Monday to Sunday from 7 a.m. to 5 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.

Schedule a Pick-up

The Habitat OC ReStores offer a pick-up service for larger, multiple item donations that meet our 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 10 days in advance.
