FAQ: Donations & Pickups


Are items donated to the ReStore used to build Habitat homes?
Item donated to the ReStores are sold to the public at discounted prices and the proceeds help fund local Habitat homebuilding programs. Your donations support the construction of Habitat homes, and also help reduce the costs of home improvement for other homeowners in the Portland and Vancouver region. To learn more about the valuable work Habitat for Humanity is doing in the community, visit Habitat for Humanity Portland Region and Evergreen Habitat for Humanity.   

How does my donation to the ReStore help the environment?
By donating your items or shopping at the ReStore, we can give items new life and keep usable materials out of local landfills. In the past year, our ReStores diverted 7,273 tons of reusable materials from landfills last year.
Do the ReStores repair donated items and materials?
Unfortunately, we currently do not have the resources to repair or touch up items, which is why we can only accept lightly used donations that are in good, working condition.
Is my item donation tax-deductible? 
Yes! We provide donation receipts that you can use for tax deduction purposes. Please note that Habitat cannot appraise your donations, so all donors must fill out an estimated value for their donations on the receipt. You are required by law to fill out IRS Form 8283 for any donation you value at $500 or more, and any donation with a total value of $5,000 or more must also be professionally appraised.
