If you are not familiar with the Houston Habitat for Humanity ReStore, it would be our pleasure to introduce you to this wonderful program. The ReStore is actually a home improvement store that offers new and like-new building materials; open to the public, shoppers can enjoy the experience of shopping for their new home—for materials like furniture, paint, cabinets, appliances, and more—while benefitting from deeply discounted prices. Proceeds from the sale of these household items go toward Habitat for Humanity’s mission of eliminating substandard housing in our city.
If you are in the beginning stages of a home renovation project, have you considered donating your new and like-new household items? If so, consider donating them to the Houston Habitat ReStore. Environmentally and socially responsible, the ReStore is a great way to keep high-quality, usable materials out of the landfill.
Homeowners who wish to donate also benefit from their donation. In addition to a tax deduction, the ReStore will help you arrange a pick-up of materials you wish to donate. Since the deconstruction period can be one of the most stressful aspects of a home renovation project, this is a wonderful incentive for homeowners to consider donating to the ReStore. In fact, the ReStore has deconstruction services available:
-Kitchen cabinet removal: Trained staff remove and haul away kitchen cabinets and appliances, and leave your kitchen ready for renovation.
-Strip outs: Hardwood floors, doors, windows, lighting, lumber, plumbing, etc.
-Residential DeConstruction: Partial or full-scale projects; competitively-priced deconstruction services. Donated materials are tax-deductible contributions!
