DONATE FURNITURE, APPLIANCES, RECYCLED BUILDING MATERIALS AND MORE

Your donation not only helps you declutter your life, it helps Habitat for Humanity Greater SF build homes and hope for working families in our area. In fact, because of ReStore donations, we raised more than $500K to support the Habitat for Humanity mission. Plus, when you donate to ReStore, items that might otherwise end up in the dump find new homes. In the past two years, we’ve diverted over 2,000 tons of usable material from going into a landfill.
