Join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King through meaningful service to our community: "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


The Habitat for Humanity ReStore accepts donated new and used building materials, furniture, appliances, lighting fixtures and other home goods, and we sell them in our stores to raise money for Habitat home-building projects. In fact, this past year we took in 47,326 donations from individuals and business partners.

Our stores in Portland, Gresham, Beaverton and Vancouver support three Habitat affiliates: Portland/Metro East, Willamette West, and Evergreen. In the past three years, we raised enough money to build just under 40 Habitat homes in partnership with low-income families.

The ReStore is also big into reuse. This year our team helped to divert 7,278 tons of reusable materials from landfills--and we're working to improve that number. We Our shoppers are some of the most creative on the planet. We love how they re-think, re-imagine and re-invent with used materials. Of course we have to heap praise and appreciation on our generous donors and business partners and our amazing team of over 2,000 volunteers who clocked over 62,000 hours this past year. Together we're helping to make the dream of homeownership a reality for hardworking families right here.

What is The ReStore? We are the home improvement outlet where you'll discover something new (and used) every day.

For this service day, we will be organizing and preparing donated product to be delivered to our stores to raise money to build Habitat homes!
