Foothills Habitat for Humanity ReStore DONATIONS

Donation Center is open: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Please wait at your vehicle for ReStore personnel to discuss your donations.  On times of excessive heat, it is possible the ReStore may be unable to receive donations.

We do not have a residential pickup service. Donations must be delivered to us.  Donation staff members will be available to review the donation criteria with you. Donated items must be clean, complete, and in good functioning and sellable condition. Below are two lists. One list has donations and criteria for donations we accept. The second list has donations that we do not accept. Please read both lists as there may be some cross-references. For example, sinks appear on the acceptance list. However, we do not accept pedestal or cast-iron sinks and that information is found on the decline list. For questions about a donation, please call the ReStore donation line at 916-797-8674 or email
