Thank You for Donating to Habitat Dutchess ReStore

Remodeling, cleaning, down-sizing or just getting organized?

Whatever your project, don’t let the items you no longer need end up in your local landfill. ReStore of Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County will divert tons of material from landfills each year, accepting hard-to-dispose-of items including new and used furniture, appliances, and surplus building materials. In many cases, pickup service is provided for large items.

The money raised by ReStore of Habitat Dutchess helps families build a decent and affordable place to call home. When the items you donate to ReStore are sold, the money helps families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future.
