Donate Items

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.

3 Options for Donating

  1. To schedule a donation pick-up, simply go to DonateToHabitat.org.
  2. To speak with one of our donations coordinators, call (424) 246-3637. Donation appointments fill quickly, so call in advance to ensure your pick-up!
  3. We always welcome items to be dropped off at our Bellflower or Torrance ReStore locations, Tuesday-Saturday 9am-5pm. No donations accepted after 5pm.

You will receive an In-Kind donation receipt listing all of your donation items. All donations are tax deductible and all items must be valued by you, as the donor.

Home pick-ups are dependent upon location and size. Items that fit in a car should be dropped off at your nearest ReStore location.
