Habitat for Humanity ReStores Donation Guidelines


In order to better serve our customers, we do have specific criteria for acceptable goods.  All donations are tax-deductible.  Please follow the guidelines below.  If you’re unsure if your donation meets the criteria, please call 919-744-2420.

The donation criteria are subject to change.  Some donations may be declined due to safety concerns or marketability.

If you are considering a large business donation or an estate donation, we would love to help you out!  Larger donations are wonderful and often require extra planning and resources.  Please contact our Acquisition Specialist at 919-744-2416 or eric.moe@trianglerestores.org for this type of donation.


Items we do not accept 

We do not accept items that are not in sellable condition – this includes items that have rips, tears, stains, odors, or pet hair.  We also do not accept items that have real or potential safety hazards such as items that have recalls or any hazardous chemicals.  All items must be in good working condition as we do not do any repairs or restoration of items.

The following is a comprehensive list of items we do not accept. Please review carefully and do not donate items that we cannot sell: this will add to our dumpster fees and take away money from our mission.
