ReStore Donations

Donate to the ReStore

Whether you’re renovating your home, cleaning out your garage, downsizing or decluttering, Habitat Lake County’s ReStore in Gurnee accepts your gently-used furniture, appliances, cabinetry, building materials, and other household items.

It’s easy: share your donation information in the form below and someone will contact you within 3 business days to let you know if the ReStore can accept your items. Once you receive confirmation that we are able to accept your donation, you can then simply drop off your items to the ReStore anytime we’re open, or you can request a pickup (dependent on donation and availability).

Donating to the ReStore is good for Lake County and for you: all proceeds from the store support Habitat Lake County’s mission and all donations are tax-deductible.
