What's a design firm to do when they are relocating and have too many furniture pieces to bring with them? They donate them to ReStore!
When Susan of Joy Robichaud and Associates began looking for a place to donate the interior design firm's furniture before their move, she thought back to her personal donation experiences. She recalled her personal donation to the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and decided to explore the possibility of donating the firm's extra office furniture.
"There are a lot of options out there, but we knew we wanted to donate to a good cause," Susan said. "We felt that Habitat for Humanity and ReStore fulfill a basic need that every person should have. It seemed like the perfect fit."
After taking a look at the accepted materials list, Susan began the donation process.
"It was really easy to fill out the online form. Because I had donated in the past, I knew that sending photos and specific details about the pieces would be helpful for the donation coordinator. She emailed me right away and gave me a few dates to choose from and was super flexible throughout the process of scheduling a pick up."
A few items that were donated were pieces the firm ordered from partners to help illustrate the high-end, custom work and provide a real-life example of a manufacturer's production quality. And as you might expect from an interior design firm, those pieces are nothing short of stunning.

ReStore relies on donations from individuals and local businesses to keep the store stocked and provide quality inventory. Proceeds from ReStore sales help to fund the building of Twin Cities Habitat homes.
If you would like to consider making a donation to ReStore, please review our accepted materials list, and feel free to drop off your donation at our New Brighton location (our Minneapolis store is set to open later this fall!). For larger donations, you may want to request a pick up.
