ReStore Inventory

ReStore's inventory of materials is made up of generous donations provided by members of our community.  Donors include individuals, organizations, manufacturers, businesses and retailers.  Many donors are remodeling, organizing, downsizing, or redecorating.  Often businesses have overstocks or scratch and dent items to offer to us.  ReStore accepts a variety of new and gently used home improvement items and materials. All donations upon acceptance may receive a tax-decuctable receipt, because Habitat for humanity of Greater Centre County is a 501-C3 organization.

Donation Guidelines

  • Donations must be clean and in 100% working order
  • After hours drop offs are not permitted
  • Please arrive with donations no later than half hour to closing time. 

Donation Steps 

1.  If you have good, reusable or new items you would like us to consider for donation, call ReStore at (814) 353-2390.  You will  be asked for a general description of items including quantities, sizes, and condition.  Please also be prepared to share contact information.  Donors are encouraged to arrange to transport items to ReStore to reduce operating costs at the facility, so please indicate if you will be dropping off the item or need to schedule a donation pick-up.

2.  ReStore determines if the item can be accepted for donation.  Final decisions are reserved until the time of drop off or pick up.

3.  Please arrive at ReStore no later than half hour prior to closing with your prescreened items.  If a pick up is requested, one may be scheduled over the telephone or via e-mail.

 For free donation pick ups:

  *Please locate items on ground level (in a carport or garage for example).

  *Please label items "Habitat Donation."

  *Absolutely no hazardous materials or garbage, please. 

4.  Thank you!  ReStore will issue a receipt that may be used for tax purposes for items it is able to accept.  The value of the donation is determined by the donor.

The ReStore may refuse materials based on material condition, current needs, inventory levels or for any other reason. Please call (814) 353-2390 for more information.
