Donate to the Restore, help build affordable housing.
By donating your new and gently used furniture, appliances, home decor, and building materials, you help start a chain reaction of community investment that not only builds homes, but also builds stronger communities.
You can drop off items at the ReStore Monday - Friday from 9am-4pm and Saturday from 9am-2pm, or you can schedule a FREE pickup for larger items. Call (519) 352-4440 for more information or fill out the form below.

FREE Pick-Up makes donating simple.
We offer free weekly pickups of large items in Chatham-Kent. Please note that sometimes low demand for pickups in certain areas may make it difficult to pick up in all areas each week.

For large quantities of items or if you have a timeline please give us as much notice as possible.
Note: On your scheduled pick up day, please ensure all items are outside of the home prior to pick up - items can be placed in a garage, on a porch or patio, a driveway or outside. Our team is not currently entering homes to collect donations. Thank you!
