ABOUT THE RESTORE

The Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West ReStore accepts donations of new and gently used appliances, furniture, clothing, home improvement items and more donated to us by local individuals and businesses. The ReStore sells those items to the public at prices well below retail. The proceeds are then used to build Habitat homes with low-income families in our community.  The ReStore is able to fund these homes with the help of our wonderful donors, customers and volunteers.  We invite and encourage you to donate, shop and volunteer with us to help make a difference in West St. Tammany Parish!

DONATE

 

Remodeling, downsizing or just getting organized? Donate your household goods and building materials to the ReStore. We’ll gladly take new and gently-used items off your hands and use the proceeds to construct homes with local families.

Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We will gladly provide you with a receipt for your donated items. Due to IRS regulations, we are not allowed to assign a value to donated items, but your receipt will list the items you donated. We encourage you to work with your tax professional to determine the value and use of your tax receipt. More information can be found on the IRS website.
