Donate to Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West ReStore

Remodeling, downsizing or just getting organized? Donate your household goods and building materials to the Habitat for Humanity St. Tammany West ReStore. We’ll gladly take new and gently-used items off your hands and use the proceeds to construct homes with local families. As always, your donations are tax-deductible and you get the satisfaction that your items won't end up in a landfill.

For businesses, donating to the Habitat ReStore is a great way to move discontinued or excess stock, deal with gently used returns and show your customers that you care about the community. Plus, we’ll pick up your donated goods, which will save you time and money.

Why don't we accept some items? Though we greatly appreciate everyone who wants to donate to the Habitat ReStore, we are unable to accept all items. Sometimes, the reason is related to safety concerns and other times it is for legal reasons.  Also, we have found that we just can’t sell certain items, leading us to dispose of the things we cannot recycle, repair or clean. This takes valuable time and money away from supporting the Habitat mission. Below is a list of referral organizations.
