can make a difference
Our ReStores are supplied with QUALITY, REUSABLE donated furniture, appliances, and building materials through the generosity of people like you. All of the profits from the ReStores go toward supporting the Habitat Grey Bruce and building affordable houses in Grey and Bruce Counties.
Our resources are limited, so please help us out and drop off any donations that are small enough to fit into your vehicle at your local ReStore. Our staff and volunteers are happy to answer any questions you have about the suitability of your donation. Some items normally accepted can be overstocked, and may not be accepted from time to time. If you have any concerns regarding your donated items illegibility, call your local ReStore @ (519)371-6776, prior to drop off. All donations must be inspected during our normal business hours. Please do not drop off materials after business hours.
Each ReStore Location also offers additional donation opportunities for household and clothing goods. Habitat Grey Bruce has partnered with Recycling Rewards to provide donation bins for used clothing and household goods at each location. All donated items are sorted and purchased by Talize Thrift Retail and then sold, recycled, re-purposed or donated to developing nations. For more information and a list of acceptable items follow the link.
For information on our Salvage Crew and the possibility of a pickup, delivery or removing salvageable materials from your project or home, please contact Our Salvage Coordinator. Our Coordinator generally will respond within the next business day.
Note* A tax receipt can be issued for any donation over an assessed value of $100
