Foothills Habitat for Humanity ReStore DONATIONS

Changes due to COVID-19 Please understand that we have found it necessary to make changes due to COVID-19. We have changed our days and hours the store is open, and donations are accepted. There are also changes to our donation criteria and we may limit the number of items, particularly soft goods and upholstered furniture, accepted at a given time due to sanitation and space constraints.  

 Donations: Thursday through Saturday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm following new safety procedures. Please wait at your vehicle for ReStore personnel to discuss your donations and our procedures. We will follow no-contact procedures and social distancing so you may be asked to unload your donations. Face coverings are required during the donation process and while shopping in the store.

Donated items must be clean, complete, and in good functioning and sellable condition. Below are two lists with donation acceptance and decline information for common donations. For questions about a donation, please call the ReStore donation line at 916-797-8674 or email us at restore@surewest.net.  Please note that all donated items must be delivered to us.  Donation staff members will be available to review the donation criteria with you. We are unable to provide residential pick-up.
