Donate to the ReStore

Thanks to generous support from our community, the Asheville Habitat ReStore is one of the highest ranked Habitat ReStores in the country (out of nearly 900 stores).

This is a testament to the residents of Buncombe County who value local non-profits, re-using materials, and supporting a store where they can find the best deals around! When you donate to the ReStore you help generate funding for Habitat while keeping usable goods out of the landfill. 

Donate Merchandise

The ReStore will gladly pick up donated items anywhere in Buncombe County. Pick-up service is available Monday through Saturday.

Please call the ReStore to make arrangements or complete the online form. Or, you may drop your items off at the ReStore at 31 Meadow Road during regular business hours: Monday – Saturday from 9am-6pm. If you are a business and have excess inventory, clearance, or bulk items you’d like to donate, please email or call 828-254-6706.
