Donate to ReStore

Getting new furniture or appliances? Moving? Down-sizing? Cleaning up? Renovating? Or even demolishing? 

Whenever you have something to get rid of that still has life left, don’t dump it, donate it to ReStore. ReStore depends entirely on donations and every donation supports affordable housing right here in the Fraser Valley.

You can schedule a pick up, drop off at our store or even request our Deconstruction Team to do salvage and removal work. Before you finalize your decision to donate, please send a picture, your location and details about your donation to ReStore at restoredonate@habitatufv.ca or call 604-557-1020 to ensure that we can take your donation.
