Give Your Goods A New Homes…And Do Some Good

Donate home improvement items and donate building materials to make a difference.

At the Habitat For Humanity ReStore Addison and Habitat For Humanity ReStore Aurora, it’s easy to repurpose your gently used household items and overstock building supplies. We’re always looking for quality furniture, appliances, cabinets, lighting, tools and more for our stores. Remember—your hand-me-downs can be someone else’s treasure. Donate today!

In addition to helping to reuse and recycle, your Habitat for Humanity ReStore donations are tax deductible. Donations can be dropped off at the Habitat For Humanity ReStore Addison or Habitat For Humanity ReStore Aurora during normal business hours. Please note that the donation loading zone closes 30 minutes prior to closing.

We also offer a pick-up service for select large Habitat for Humanity ReStore donations. All pick-ups require the donated items to be in a garage or porch. Due to insurance and logistical reasons, drivers are not permitted to enter a residence. This includes condominiums and apartments. All Habitat for Humanity ReStore donations are accepted at the driver’s discretion.

To schedule a pickup, please fill out the following form. We will respond as soon as we can!
Call the Habitat For Humanity ReStore Addison at 630-517-2080 x405 or the Habitat For Humanity ReStore Aurora at 630-585-5508 or email donations@foxvalleyrestore.org.
Thank you!
