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 donations at the ReStore or request a pick-up.

Donation Drop-Off in Four Simple Steps 

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. Of special note, we are unable to receive donations of opened paint cans from individuals; we can only accept unopened paint cans from businesses.

 

Step 2: You can drop off your donation at the ReStore anytime between 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM Wednesday 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 contact us by filling out the donation request form below or calling the ReStore at 312-563-0296 ext. 203. 

 

Step 4: Do a happy dance! You just helped build a brighter future for Chicago families and communities.
 

 

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@habitatchicago.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.
