Donate to the Philadelphia ReStores

Decluttering, downsizing or redesigning?

When you’re ready to part with new and gently-used furniture, home décor, appliances or building materials, the ReStores can help you start fresh.

All donations are tax-deductible and help Habitat Philadelphia build and repair homes alongside local families.

Donation Guidelines to Keep in Mind

The Philadelphia ReStores accept a wide range of items in overall excellent condition. As you consider donating, we ask that you prioritize stylish and functional pieces that you’d happily gift to family or friends.

Safety Policy

As our eyes on the road, our drivers make the final call whether a donation meets ReStore requirements and can be moved without risk to staff or property.

Refusal Policy

The ReStores accept as many donations as possible but occasionally pass up items based on condition, storage limitations and inventory.
