Used Material Item Donations
The Restore receives new, used, discontinued or surplus building materials, appliances and home furnishings from companies, contractors, retailers, film and television studios and individuals.
You can donate any used construction supplies and old building material to Habitat for Humanity and we will use proceeds from this tax deductible gift to build houses for low income families in Los Angeles.
