Donate to ReStore

Donate Furniture, Appliances, Cabinets, Housewares, recycled Building Materials and More

Your donation not only helps you declutter your life, it helps Habitat for Humanity of South Central New Jersey build strength, stability and independence for working families in our area. In fact, because of ReStore donations, we raised more than $2 Million to support the Habitat for Humanity mission in Atlantic, Burlington Camden and Mercer Counties.  Plus, when you donate to our ReStores, items that might otherwise end up in a landfill find new homes. In the past year, we’ve diverted over 3.1 million pounds of usable material.

General FAQ


What happens with my material donation? Does it go into a home built by Habitat?

Material donations are not used in Habitat-built homes. Instead, our ReStore thrift shop sells them at low-cost to the public. Our ReStore generates a valuable revenue stream that enables Habitat for Humanity to build more decent, affordable housing for hard-working, low-income families in New Jersey. Your donation not only helps support the construction of Habitat homes, it also helps reduce the costs of home improvement for other homeowners in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden and Mercer Counties.


Does the ReStore repair donated items and materials?

Unfortunately, we do not currently have the resources to repair or touch up items, which is why we can only accept gently used donations that are in working condition.


Why don’t you accept certain items?

Some of our donation restrictions are dictated by state or federal law (mattresses, boxsprings, cribs, halogen lamps, etc). Other restrictions are based on our retail experience and the limited space that we have to work with. If an item doesn’t sell in our ReStore, we have to pay to dispose of it, which takes away from our mission of building affordable housing in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden and Mercer Counties.

Our staff members have the final say on what we accept.


Does the ReStore accept scrap metal and nonworking appliances for recycling?

Yes. We are, however, unable to schedule pickups for these items. If you can drop off your scrap metal/nonworking appliance (electronics excluded) at our ReStore, we will break them down and sort them for recycling. The donation of these materials is also tax-deductible!


How much is my donation worth?

We are not able to provide values for donated items at this time.


Can I write the donation off of my taxes?

All donations made to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore are tax-deductible. We are a 501(c)(3) and our charity number (EIN) is 22-2905055. We provide forms in-store and on-site.


How much does a donation pickup cost?

Our pickups are free, but donations in the form of checks written out to “Habitat for Humanity” are always appreciated. They help offset the cost of fuel and maintenance on our trucks. Our truck staff is able to accept tips as well.


When do you schedule pickups?

Our dispatcher is in the office Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm. You may submit a request online at any time, and it will be answered within 24 hours.


How far out do I need to schedule for a donation pick up?

We’re typically a week out for most donation pickups. This varies based on seasonal demand, the number of items you have to donate, or if you are located in a remote area.


Do you go inside of the house?

Yes, when a homeowner or another adult on behalf of the homeowner is present. Please make your donations more accessible by storing them in a garage or by putting them on the first floor whenever possible. This helps save on time so that we can help out more donors. If you aren’t capable of doing this, we are still able to enter the house. If the truck staff feels that the removal of your donation will be unsafe, however, they have the right to refuse the pick up.


I have a small box / single bag of clothing. Will you pick this up?

No, We reserve our truck for larger donations of furniture or appliances.


Can I leave the donation outside?

Yes! You may leave items in the front of the house or garage with a note that says, “Donation” to ensure that it is not taken away by somebody else. In case of poor weather, you may leave a tarp over the items (we will not take the tarp). If requested, we will leave a tax receipt inside a mailbox or door. We are not able to enter backyards without someone present.
