In this edition of the ReStore Recap, take a look at how the different ways you support Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity have made a difference in our Annual Report. You can also learn how to donate leftover materials from your home or business, and learn about some essential tools to keep around the house. You can also follow along while learning how to give a chair new life!

You helped create, preserve, and promote homeownership

Without the support of volunteers, donors, and ReStore shoppers, Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity wouldn’t be able to do the important work of bringing people together to create, preserve, and promote affordable homeownership and advance racial equity in housing. Thank you for all that you do! Take a moment to watch this video and reflect on the year with Habitat.

What to Do with Leftover Building Materials

You spent your summer working on the house, but don’t want to store all of the extra lumber, flooring, or paint supplies through the winter. Where can all of these items go? ReStore can accept many of your leftover construction and renovation supplies, and even provides a free pickup service to make your donation as easy as pie.

How to Make a Business Donation to Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore

If your business needs to free up space in your warehouse or prepare for a move, partnering with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore will provide an easy way to donate your items (with its free business pickup service) and benefit the community.
