Donate to the ReStore

Chipola Area Habitat for Humanity has two ReStore locations to serve our community. A ReStore is a home improvement store and donation center that sells new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds are used to help build and repair homes in our communities and around the world — a good deal for you, our community and the environment.

When you support your local ReStore by donating, shopping, or volunteering, you are helping to continue the cycle of generating funding for Habitat while keeping usable goods out of the landfill.
