Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price.
ReStores are independently owned and operated by local Habitat for Humanity organizations. Proceeds are used to help build strength, stability, self-reliance, and shelter in local communities and around the world.
“Do it yourselfer’s” love shopping The ReStore because we sell new and reclaimed building materials, as well as new and used appliances, furniture and other home goods at deeply discounted prices. Sales go to funding Habitat for Humanity’s homebuilding projects right here in our own community. We’re the home improvement outlet that sparks the imagination and saves you money while diverting over 5,000 tons of reusable goods from area landfills each year.

A volunteer shift at the ReStore may include: loading and unloading vehicles, receiving donations, assisting customers, sorting materials (like lumber, small hardware, tiles, tools, etc.), and basic maintenance duties such as sweeping, cleaning, and organizing our aisles. Occasionally, we’ll have a special project that comes up like constructing a display, sorting bin tables, or painting. Every day is a little different, and everything you do to help is important, so we appreciate your flexibility as a volunteer. Volunteers are needed Monday-Friday, 9 am-5:30 pm & Saturdays 9 am-4 pm.

What happens with my donation? Does it go into a home built by Habitat?
Material donations are not used in Habitat-built homes. Instead, our ReStores sell them at low-cost to the public. The ReStores generate a valuable revenue stream that enables Habitat for Humanity of the Mid-Willamette Valley to build more decent, affordable housing for hard-working, low-income families. Your donation not only helps support the construction of Habitat homes, it also helps reduce the costs of home-improvement for other homeowners in the Salem/Keizer and surrounding community.
Do the ReStores repair donated items and materials?
Unfortunately, we currently do not have the resources to repair or touch up items, which is why we can only accept lightly used donations that are in good, working condition.
Do the ReStores accept scrap metal and nonworking appliances for recycling?
Yes! We have a volunteer-run recycling program. We are, however, unable to schedule pickups for these items. If you can drop off your scrap metal/nonworking appliance (electronics excluded) at our ReStore location at 1249 13th St, we will break them down and sort them for recycling. The donation of these materials is also tax deductible!
Can the ReStore pick up donations that are inside my home?
No. Unfortunately, our insurance policy prevents our staff and volunteers from entering houses for the purpose of picking up material donations. All donations must be left outside or in a garage area for pickup. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Does the ReStore take cars?
How do I count my donation as a tax deduction if I have scheduled a pickup?
Our drivers will provide you with the necessary paperwork when they come to pick up your donation. If you are unable to be present for your pickup, please let us know in advance an appropriate place to put the receipt at the pickup location. Legally, Habitat cannot appraise your donation(s), so all donors must fill out an estimated value of their donation(s) on the receipt. Please keep in mind that you are required by law to fill out IRS Form 8283 for any donation you value at $500 or more. Any donation with a total value of $5,000 or more must also be professionally appraised.
Is there a charge to pick up my donation?
Not currently. Due to fuel and truck maintenance costs, The ReStore may begin charging a $20 fee to pick up donations next year.
What happens if I need to cancel my pickup?
If you have to cancel or re-schedule a donation pickup, please notify us at least 48 hours in advance so that we can accommodate other donors.
