Support Affordable Housing in Your Community:
Donate to ReStore

Donating your new and gently used building materials, furniture, appliances, and tools to Habitat ReStore directly impacts your community. For ReStore shoppers, your donated items become a cost-effective solution for home repairs and upgrades. Landfill waste is reduced. Housing is made affordable through Habitat for Humanity Programs. Your donation is tax-deductible with a value determined by you.

Dear ReStore Donor,

Amidst current global concerns, Appleton’s ReStores are closed effective Wednesday, March 18th, 2020 until further notice.

Donation pickups are suspended until further notice.

Out of care and compassion for ReStore volunteers, staff, and the community we love, Appleton’s ReStores are not accepting drop off donations at this time. We hope that everyone makes it through this tough time safe and healthy. By closing our doors and asking you to hold onto your ReStore donations until we can accept them once again, we are doing our part in limiting the spread of illness. Please keep Habitat in your thoughts while we are away. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Although staff will not be onsite at the stores, I welcome you to contact me via email if you have specific questions about donations: jamiek@foxcitieshabitat.org or ReStoreDonations@foxcitieshabitat.org

Please check back for updates and information on how you can donate in the coming days and weeks.

Thank you for supporting Appleton’s Habitat ReStores. 

-Jamie K, Donations Coordinator
