The Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis ReStore is thankful for our many individual and corporate donors because without them, we wouldn't have much of a store!
We accept donations of new and reusable building materials and home remodeling supplies. In general, we accept items that are in good, working condition that our customers might be interested in giving a new home. Due to legal restrictions, safety concerns, and space constraints, we are unable to accept some items even if they are in good condition. If you are wondering if your items meet our donation guidelines, give us a call at 314-678-4576 or visit our donation guidelines page. For more information you can also visit the page listing items we can't accept.
We accept donations dropped off at ReStore Forest Park Tuesday-Saturday from 9am-3pm and at ReStore Des Peres Wednesday-Sunday from 10am-3pm. We will usually be able to give you a hand unloading, but please bring your own help if you're in a hurry. We will provide a receipt for your donated items. Feel free to bring a written list of your items if you would like specific information for your records.
If you are unable to transport a large donation, we offer a pick up service in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and the following zip codes in the Illinois area - 62201, 62202, 62203, 62204, 62205, 62206, 62207, 62208, 62223, 62226, 62236, 62239, 62240, 62260, 62269. This type of donation includes cabinet sets, appliances, tubs, and large doors and windows. To check if your donation qualifies for this service, call us at 314-678-4576 or email Matt Hardy at email@example.com. Our pick up service is free of charge, but we do ask for your patience. It usually takes about one week for us to pick up your items. We are unable to schedule specific dates for pick ups; however, we call our donors the day before we are planning to be in their area. We are able to pick up items from the front of the house or an accessible garage. We are unable to enter the house for any reason.
You can also make a donation using a 48-hour priority home pick up service through our partnership with College Hunks Hauling. For a fee, items will be picked up by College Hunks Hauling and donated to the Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis ReStore. You will receive a donor receipt for tax purposes for your donations. Additionally, College Hunks Hauling can remove other items for you that we may not accept. Donors will receive a discount off the regular pricing of our hauling partner. Your donation is still tax-deductible when using this 48-hour priority service. Please call 1-800-586-5872 to make arrangements.
Please note that we reserve the right to refuse any items that do not meet our current donation guidelines. If you have any questions about making a donation, stop by or give us a call!
The ReStore is unable to provide a monetary value for your in-kind donation. We will, however, list the items on your donation receipt as specifically as you would like for your records. Please consult with your tax preparer, especially for donations of high value. Consider preparing an itemized list, taking pictures of your items, and/or having your items appraised prior to donation.
