how can you donate to ReStore?

If you plan on making a donation to the ReStore there are a few points to keep in mind:

All donations must be inspected. When you call us for a pick up or to ask about dropping off a donation, the ReStore staff will ask you questions and to email us a photo of your items for donation to determine whether we can accept the donation at our store.

We cannot accept every donation. We do have guidelines of what we items can and cannot accept, which can vary depending on the season or what merchandise we have in stock. This means that we may not be able to take your donation at that time.

You must notify us before dropping off any items. Please call ahead or email us to let us know what items you would like to donate. After we have inspected it and determined that we can gladly accept your donation, we will schedule the time and date for the pick-up or drop-off. Please refrain from leaving unapproved items at our donation centres. Dropping off donations outside of store hours is prohibited.

For those unable to drop off their donations, we offer a pick-up service for large items, or large quantities.  Please send us an email with photos and descriptions of your donations to restore@habitatqc.ca.  If your donation meets our pick-up service criteria, you will receive a call from a donation team member within 72 hours to schedule a pickup. Please note that we ask for a 50$ contribution fee for the pick-up.

We have certain restrictions for item pick-ups. We are not able to move items from basements or upper storeys.  All items must be on the main floor, outside the home, or in the garage.  All items will be inspected by the driver, who will make the final decision about whether or not a donation is accepted.
