If you have a question about which ReStore covers your territory, please call us.
Donations may be brought to the ReStore during normal business hours: Monday through and Saturday, 9AM to 5PM. For larger items or larger quantities of items, please arrive by 4:30 to give our staff time to help you unload. If you would like to schedule a donation pickup, please call (626) 387-6900.
Habitat ReStore staff and volunteers reserve the right to accept or decline any offered donations based on condition, and accessibility. For a good overall condition assessment, ask yourself if the item is working/fully functional. Second, ask if it’s the kind of condition you would feel good about giving to a friend. If yes to both of those questions, you’re probably good to go.

This means any sinks, faucets (bathroom or kitchen), dishwashers, water heaters, metal pipe or pipe fittings, or plumbed-in appliances manufactured prior to 1/4/2014 will not be accepted as donations.
This includes the following products:
- Kitchen faucets, bathroom sink faucets, dishwashers, water heaters
