Donate

Donations wanted!

ReStore provides businesses and individuals an opportunity to donate items they no longer need, while also offering them a tax benefit for contributing to a qualified 501(c)(3) organization. Many of the items we sell would otherwise end up in a landfill.  

Ready to donate? Bring your donation directly to our ReStore Tuesday - Saturday 9:30-4:30. Receive a 10% coupon towards your next purchase. When you donate directly in our store, 100% of the proceeds go our affiliate and the maximum donation potential will be reached!

We can pick up large quantity donations and bulky items from your home or business, making it easy for you to donate items you no longer need and help your community. To apply for a free donation pickup, please fill out the form above. Donation inquiries will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Please remember we only accept items based on donations guidelines (see below).
