If you’ve ever wondered exactly what is Habitat ReStore, how the stores support Habitat for Humanity, or just about any other Habitat ReStore related question, you’re in the right place.

What is Habitat for Humanity ReStore?
Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement charity stores. The items they offer are for the public and are similar to what you may be familiar with seeing in other home good stores, but Habitat ReStores have their own purpose.

The purpose of Habitat ReStores is to contribute to the work of Habitat for Humanity. When you support Habitat for Humanity ReStore Philippines by shopping, donating or volunteering, you are not only supporting your local community but also helping the mission to provide decent shelter here in the Philippines.

Because the stock of ReStore depends on donations, you never know exactly what you’ll find at ReStore. It could be the brand new box of tile you’ve been needing to complete a bathroom project, or a vintage treasure you won’t find anywhere else. You can expect to find both new and gently used items throughout the store.

What donations does Habitat ReStore accept?
There are a wide variety of items Habitat ReStores accept that fall under the household or building products.

However, most stores are often on the lookout for the following specific items, grouped by category:

Household items
Appliances
TVs
Furniture
Lighting

Building Materials
Doors & windows
Plumbing supplies
Hand & power tools
Flooring

This is not an exhaustive list, but it is a good start to let you know what kind of items ReStores accept if you are thinking about donating.

When you are ready to donate, please send an email to restore@habitat.org.ph or contact 856-9342 / 807-1169 / 0927-5720887 / 0908-7273377 to make sure they are currently accepting the items you would like to donate. How do you find your ReStore? We’re glad you asked:

Where can I find a Habitat ReStore?
ReStore in the Philippines: the 1st and only one in Asia. Lot 2, Block, G-3, Alabang-Zapote Rd, Almanza Uno, Las Pinas City, 1750 (in between DBP Village and Shell gas station, beside Amaia Devt)

Are Habitat ReStores open to the public?
Yes! All Habitat ReStores are open to the public. Stop by during store hours to see what kind of deals you can find, as well as to drop off your own donations.

How do ReStores support Habitat for Humanity?
Habitat ReStores help fund Habitat for Humanity’s mission to end substandard housing by building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Proceeds from Habitat ReStores are put to use both in your local community and around the world.

Do you offer furniture donation pickup? What about appliances?
Habitat ReStore does offer pickup services for many items. Call ahead to make sure they currently are accepting the item or items you have available.

Can I donate a car?
You sure can! You can even donate a truck, boat, bus, plane or other vehicle.

What does a Habitat ReStore offer?
Habitat ReStores tend to resemble a home improvement store — a very unique home improvement store.

The wide variety of quality goods you’ll find is a result of ReStore donations coming from everyone, from you and your neighbor after you’ve finished a project around the house to large restaurant chains that are remodeling their restaurants and donating the old furniture to ReStore.

At the majority of ReStores you’ll find items that fit into the following categories: building materials, appliances and furniture. The items you’ll find will range from brand new to gently used, and there will likely be a wide range of brands and styles. Of course, that’s not all you’ll find, so we recommend getting down to Habitat ReStore today (and you may want to go back next week, too, to see what new items have arrived).

How do Habitat ReStores help the environment?
When a gently used building material or household product is donated to Habitat ReStore and then offered at a discount to a community member that needs it, that item is recycled and kept out of the landfill.

How can I support Habitat ReStore?
In all kinds of ways!

When you shop or donate at a ReStore, you are automatically supporting the Habitat mission worldwide. Additionally, ReStores are always looking for volunteers. Volunteers can range from customer service to interior decorators.

Just like the inventory of every ReStore is different, so are the volunteer needs.

What are some examples of DIY projects made from items from Habitat ReStores?
Though at most stores you’ll often find new or nearly new items that are ready to use as soon as you get it home, many also scour Habitat ReStore for items that will be part of their next DIY or upcycle project.
