~habitat/sites/default/files/accepted%20materials3.pdfDonations to Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley ReStore Elgin

Donations of building materials may be used directly on one of our build sites, depending on construction needs. However, most donations are sold through our ReStore, and the proceeds directly fund current building projects. If you would like to discuss a donation directly, please call the ReStore at 847-742-9905.

Donate Building Materials, Furniture, Appliances

Whether you have overstock, surplus, or discontinued product lines or display materials, or are involved in remodeling projects where reusable materials are being replaced with new product, we may want it. Habitat for Humanity is a 501(c)3 charity, so donations are tax deductible. 

We ask for your cooperation in donating only materials that are truly reusable. Please understand that if we feel that we cannot sell an item, we reserve the right to decline the donation,so that ReStore profits are used to build homes, and not pay for disposal fees.
