More than 70 percent of Americans take part in some form of spring cleaning every year! The benefits of this annual tradition are easy to see: a clean home is a healthier home and it provides a great time to take stock of the things you need and those you don’t.
Our Habitat for Humanity ReStore sees the indirect benefits of your spring cleaning every day from those boxes marked “Donate.” When those donated items are sold, someone in your community gets to give your item a second life for a great price. In addition, proceeds from the sale go to support our affordable housing program, which builds new houses and provides critical home repairs to limited-income families.
Let us help out with your spring cleaning checklist with the following suggestions:
decluttering - Our ReStore accepts a variety of home goods and home decor
items. Donate your gently used books, dishes, throw pillows, framed mirrors, wall art, knick-knacks, and more. Cleaning out the shed or the garage? We also accept gardening tools, flower pots, garden art, hand and power tools, and gently used lawn equipment.
patio prep - Bring us your gently used patio furniture, outdoor cushions, firepits, or grills.
redecorate - Looking to upgrade your living room or kitchen? If you're buying new, we'll come to pick up your gently used furniture and appliances for free. If you're buying on a budget, our inventory is constantly changing and won't break the bank!
exercise upgrades - Trading in your treadmill for a Peloton? Turning that home gym into a library instead? We accept exercise equipment, free weights, rowing machines, and more.
home improvements - Got some DIY projects planned? We sell and accept donations of building materials like flooring, doors, windows, tile, plumbing, hardware, and more. If it's time for a kitchen upgrade, consider our Deconstruction Program where our skilled decon team will remove your old cabinets at a fraction of the price of a traditional contractor.
