DONATE TO RESTORE

Whether you are an individual renovating your home, a contractor with excess materials, or the owner of home design store with a rotating inventory, ReStore Chicago is thrilled to accept your gently-used furniture, appliances, and building materials.

It’s quick, easy, tax-deductible, keeps usable goods out of landfills, and helps fund the Habitat mission right here in Chicago. Simply drop off your material donations at the ReStore or request a pick-up.  

 

Acceptable Items

 

Donation Drop-Off in Four Simple Steps 

Step 1: Give us a call at 773-539-6040 x 203 or check out our list of acceptable donations through the green button above to see if your item is a good fit. This list changes based on current inventory, so please check back each time you want to donate.  

 

Step 2: You can drop off your donation at the ReStore anytime between 10:00 AM and 5:30 PM Tuesday through Sunday. The ReStore is located at 6040 N Pulaski Rd in Chicago. Please be a good neighbor and don’t leave items when the ReStore is closed.

Directions to the donation drop-off door: From Pulaski turn west onto Glenlake Ave., then turn left into the first alley. Donation drop-off is located at door #4. If the garage is closed, ring the doorbell. 

 

Step 3: If you are unsure if your item(s) is acceptable, then you can contact us by filling out the donation request form below or calling the ReStore at 773-539-6040 x203. 

 

Step 4: Do a happy dance! You just helped build a brighter, independent future for a Habitat homebuyer. 
 

 

Donation Pick-Up in Four Simple Steps  

Can’t fit that fridge on the bus and don’t feel like walking it over? You can request a donation pick-up. Bonus: it’s totally free. 

 

Step 1: Check out our list of acceptable donations through the green button above to see if your item is a good fit. This list changes based on current inventory, so please check back each time you want to donate.  

 

Step 2:  All items must be approved by photo before a pickup can be scheduled. Fill out the donation request form below and be prepared to attach photos. In the “Other Notes” field, include that you’d like to request a donation pick-up, as well as the address where the items will need to be picked up. If it’s easier to send your photos by email, send them here: donate@restorechicago.org.

 

Step 3: Once your donation pick-up has been approved, a member of our ReStore team will contact you to schedule the best date and time. For pick-ups, someone will need to be present and available with the items in an easily accessible, ground-level area. 

 

Step 4: Celebrate! You just diverted useful goods from a landfill.
