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.

Laguna Niguel Donation Center
Specific drop-off donations are also accepted at the Laguna Niguel Donation Center, which is operated in partnership with Goodwill. We currently do not have any HFH associates on site but Goodwill employees are accepting donations in our name to put directly into our trailer and providing donors with HFH receipts. Their operating hours are Monday through Sunday, 9-11am/1-5pm. Please see attached Laguna Niguel donation guidelines as they differ from ReStore guidelines.
Whenever possibe, 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 multiple large item donations that meet our guidelines. All items must be on a ground level with easy access for removal (no elevators or stairs) and donations must be in good, clean, and resaleable condition. We do not provide any single item pickups and ask that there be 2 or more bulky items for us to accommodate. In order to make our pick-up service 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 7 days in advance. Please be aware that we ask for photos of all possible donated items.
PRINTER FRIENDLY DONATION GUIDELINES
