every donation

impacts your community.

Proceeds from the resale of ReStore donations, directly supports  Habitat for Humanity home building projects.

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. Because Habitat for Humanity CK always attempts to make the best use of our funds and resources, we reserve pick-ups for large donations such as sofas and appliances.

Why donate to the ReStore?

There are many reasons to donate the items you no longer need to the ReStore - and anyone, including individuals, businesses, contractors and suppliers, can donate. Here are a few ways you can impact your community by donating your goods to the ReStore:

Every item donated to ReStore equals less usable material thrown in a landfill. That's a benefit to everyone.  

It helps the

environment.

Every ReStore purchase helps local families build brighter futures for themselves with Habitat for Humanity.

It's good for the community.

We are able to provide a CRA tax receipt for donations valued at $100 or more.

Donations are

tax-deductible.

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!
