Why donate to ReStore?

There are so many reasons to send your local ReStore the items you no longer need 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:

It helps the environment.

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

It's good for the community.

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

Every donation is tax-deductible.

While your donation helps build homes for others, for you it provides a tax deduction to the extent allowed by law.

FREE pickup makes donating simple.

Here are some questions we get asked a lot.

Do you pick up donations?

Yes. However, because Habitat for Humanity Anchorage and Habitat for Humanity ReStore always attempt to make the best use of our funds and resources, we reserve pickups for large donations such as heavy furniture and appliances. If you have questions about scheduling a pickup, please call our store at (907) 743-8060.

Why won't you take furniture with stains?

All items donated to Habitat for Humanity ReStore are for resale, so we will not accept items that are stained, torn or broken - because they have lost their resale value.

Are my donations tax-deductible?

All donations to Habitat for Humanity ReStore are tax deductible. We will give you a tax receipt to keep for your records. Please note that, by law, we cannot assign a value to the items that you donate. You will need to consult an appraiser, or visit irs.gov for more information.
