Did you know most Habitat ReStores offer pickup of furniture donations as well as other large items including appliances, and building materials?

How do I schedule a furniture pickup?

Contact your local Habitat ReStore to see if they are able to pick up the item or items you have available.

You also can email donations@habitatdurham.com with your name, telephone number and pickup address with pictures of your items.

Then have your item picked up by trained and courteous Habitat ReStore workers and volunteers, to free up some space at your home and help make a difference both in your community and around the world.

How does donating furniture and other large items help Habitat for Humanity?

Your furniture donation is taken back to the Habitat ReStore and sold to someone else in your community that will give it a second life. Proceeds from that sale help Habitat for Humanity provide a decent place to live for people in your community and around the world.
