Make An In-Kind Donation
Do you or your company have unused building materials, hardware or related supplies? Are you interested in sharing your professional skill set with Habitat? In-kind donations of materials and services are a vital part of our mission; they help us cut costs and build more housing in our community.
Ways To Give
Donate Bulk or New Materials to Habitat Projects
We accept new, at-scale donations of many types of building materials, supplies, and tools. Our greatest material needs are drywall, fleet vehicles, property, paint, and rigid insulation board. Due to bulk purchasing agreements, ongoing in-kind donor relationships and maintaining continuity and construction standards on all Habitat homes, we are often unable to utilize donated items in new home construction. Our materials and logistics staff handle these types of donations and determine their suitability to be used on site.
Items that cannot be used in a new Habitat home may be donated to the ReStore. Revenue from donated items sold at the ReStore help us build more Habitat homes each year! So rest assured that your donation will be put to good use helping families in need.
Donate Materials to Habitat's ReStore Outlets
Twin Cities Habitat's ReStores are building materials outlets, with locations in New Brighton and Minneapolis. ReStores sell new and gently used building materials that have been donated. The revenue raised from sales goes directly to the Habitat mission and work. ReStores accept donations of building materials from the public, businesses, and contractors.
Donate Skilled Labor or Construction Services
Twin Cities Habitat utilizes volunteers for the construction work completed on our homes. However, there are a few types of services that regular volunteers are not able to perform: earthwork, sewer and water installation, concrete, plumbing, HVAC, and electrical work. Occasionally, we also need help with lead and asbestos abatement, as well as roofing and drywall finishing. Any company or individual willing to partner with Twin Cities Habitat must be licensed, insured, and committed to completing the entire project. Contact Wanda Coss at 612-305-7160 or email@example.com for more information about donating services.
If you aren’t able to commit to a large project, consider donating your services to A Brush with Kindness (ABWK), our home repair program, that assists low-income homeowners with repairs and maintenance on their homes. ABWK regularly needs plumbers, electricians, roofers and skilled carpenters. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Donate Your Vehicle
If you have an older car, truck, van, trailer, RV, or boat taking up valuable space in your yard, garage, or driveway, consider donating it to support affordable housing in the Twin Cities metro area!
Donations made through Habitat for Humanity's Cars For Homes™ program can save you the time and energy of finding a buyer. Plus, proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle will be used to help volunteers in the Minnesota area build Habitat homes.
