What is a Habitat ReStore? Habitat for Humanity ReStores are building materials reuse centers, where donated new and used building materials are sold to the public at significant discounts. ReStores link those who have good quality materials they no longer need with those who could use these materials. Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the US and Canada operate hundreds of ReStores. Through their sales, ReStores divert building materials from the landfill, while their proceeds help fund the building efforts of Habitat for Humanity.
The Quad Cities ReStore accepts donations of doors, windows, flooring, plumbing and electrical fixtures, cabinets and other building materials, as well as furniture home healthcare items and some appliances. (Click here for a list of what we accept.) Materials sold by the ReStore are donated by individuals, manufacturers, contractors and businesses in support of Habitat for Humanity. Donors reduce landfill fees and receive receipts for tax purposes. Buyers save 50-75% of retail on good quality building materials.
