What is the ReStore?

Think of the Habitat ReStore first when you’re in the market for home furnishings and construction supplies! Not only can you get a great deal, but your money goes to help build more Habitat houses. By donating, shopping, or volunteering at The Habitat ReStore, you are supporting families in the Roanoke Valley who need safe, decent and affordable housing.

The Habitat ReStore is open to everyone! In fact, we encourage everyone including homeowners, landlords and contractors to take advantage of our selection of material and great prices. Typically 30%-75% off of retail on new and gently used merchandise.

Ready to Donate?

You have options!

For Business or Commercial donations call Ryan Johnston, ReStore Donations Manager at (540)556-5786.
For Household donations call (540)344-0747 option #4.

What is in the ReStore?

The ReStore is a non-profit store and donation center selling used and some new items to fix, repair, maintain or decorate your home. ReStores accept donations and sell a constantly changing inventory of diverse, high-quality merchandise to the public at a fraction of the retail price, while diverting reusable household items and building materials from area landfills.

Sales of donated items help Habitat-Roanoke with local families to build and rehabilitate affordable homes in the Roanoke Valley — a good deal for you, your community and the environment. Together, we can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future for their families while creating stronger neighborhoods and ultimately communities.

  • Please drop off donated items during business hours to keep them safe from weather damage and theft.
  • Tax receipts are issued for all donations.
  • We use our discretion when accepting donations. We reserve the right to refuse a donation of items that are damaged or which we will be unable to sell.
Donate Drop-Off

Our donation pick-ups are scheduled during the week on an appointment basis.

Join the ReStore Corps!

If swinging a hammer is not for you, but you would still like to be a part of the Habitat-Roanoke family, we invite you to join the ReStore Corps. The dedicated volunteers who form the ReStore Corps have committed to volunteering at least 16 hours of their time, per month, at the Habitat-Roanoke ReStore. Volunteers form the backbone of the ReStore's operation and we couldn’t be successful without them!

Please note: If you cannot commit to 16 hours per month, but would still like to volunteer, you would be very welcome! We need all the help we can get.

If you are interested or would like more information, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@habitat-roanoke.org or (540)344-0747 ext. 444.
