Donate to Habitat ReStore
Are you moving or downsizing into a smaller home and have items you'd like to donate to Habitat ReStore? Planning a home renovation or just want to declutter? Donate your new and gently-used furniture, appliances, lighting, renovation materials and home decor items to Habitat for Humanity ReStore and make a positive impact in your community and the environment!
From entire kitchens to a set of door hinges, we accept a wide range of home improvement items that we then resell to the public at a fraction of the original price. Please see our acceptable item list to determine if your item can be donated to the ReStore.
Your donation makes a difference
When you donate items to Habitat ReStore or shop at a ReStore to renovate or furnish your home, you're helping Habitat for Humanity GTA achieve its mission to build safe, decent and affordable homes for working, low-income families living in need of affordable housing, through our unique affordable homeownership program. You're also helping the environment by allowing ReStore to divert thousands of tonnes of perfectly re-usable household items away from landfills and into other people's homes!
