Habitat ReStore Donations

We pick up your donations for free! Contact us:  518.395.3412 ext. 101

Donating to the Habitat ReStore is an EASY way to support Schenectady Habitat!

  • Do you have furniture or home goods that you no longer need?
  • Left-over building materials from your home improvement project?
  • Storage space or warehouse full of overstocked items?

If you can not drop off your donations, we will pick them up from your home or business for FREE and provide you with a donation receipt for tax purposes! Our friendly drivers are happy to pick up items that are available on the first, ground level, or outside of your home or business.

All donated items are resold to the public, and we use all proceeds to continue building and repairing affordable housing in Schenectady County.

When you donate to the ReStore, you enjoy a tax deduction, help provide our community with a source of low-cost building materials, furniture and home goods, and save materials from going into landfills.

Schedule a Pick-Up!

Call us about your donation at 518.395.3412 ext. 101 or send an email to restore@schenectadyhabitat.org. Please note: Our donation pickup schedule can fill up quickly so please call in advance. Our drivers always have the final right of refusal for any donated items, and can decline to accept an item at the pickup location.
