ReStore donation guide
every donation helps a family build a decent and affordable home
When you donate your gently used items to our Habitat ReStore, you are changing lives by making affordable homeownership a reality for a family in your own community! Not only are you making a difference locally, you’re making a difference globally by preventing household items with plenty of life left from needlessly going to waste in a landfill!
Some restrictions/exceptions may apply for donations to the Mon Valley Habitat ReStore. We reserve the right to refuse any donation drop-off or pick-up if it does not meet our donation criteria or standards.
If you are unsure about certain items you want to drop off or have picked up, the best way to inquire is by calling the ReStore at 304-291-2991 ext. 0.
Thank you for considering a donation to the Mon Valley Habitat ReStore!
items not accepted
Any items listed below or other items not listed may be refused on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the ReStore Manager, Donation Ambassador, or other ReStore employees. When possible, we will attempt to accept or reject an item while still in your vehicle, as to avoid extra work on your part, and upon rejection we will attempt to provide you with an alternate location to take your items.
Mon Valley Habitat for Humanity reserves the right to decline a donation based on criteria and policies enacted to ensure the safety of our donors, volunteers, and staff. Primary guidelines for refusal:
- Low-perceived value
- Safety concerns (rust, nails, etc.)
- Stained, torn, and/or damaged
- Item does not work as intended
- Item is obsolete
- Item appears to be damaged, stolen, or of questionable integrity
- Hazardous materials (paint, chemicals, etc.)
- Health concerns
- Not part of our regular inventory (clothes, etc.)
