You can receive a ReStore receipt when you donate your items. We are unable to place a value on your donated items. Feel free to fill out the receipt and assign value on your items for tax deduction purposes.

How It Works

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a place for new and gently used items to see a new life.

As a nonprofit retailer, our inventory includes donated cabinets, appliances, furniture, windows, doors, lighting, tools, and much more! It’s the perfect place to shop and find great deals for everything from small projects to large home remodeling updates. Items are sold to the public at a fraction of their original retail price. 

We are known as The Store That Builds Houses!

Net proceeds generated from the sale of ReStore items are used to build future Habitat homes in Siouxland.

Every donation, every purchase creates the opportunity for a family to build a better life.

If you think our ReStore prices are low consider a gift from God. If you think they are too high, consider it your gift to Him.
