Donated items help build homes!
Ways to Donate:
(1) Drop off your donations at the ReStore
1402 W. Washington St., Bloomington, IL 61701
Our volunteers and staff will help you unload once you arrive.
Tuesday - Saturday:
COVID19 Update: we currently have limited hours of 10am-3pm.
(2) Let us pick up your items for you
Free pickup in McLean County
If your items are too large for you to drop off, we offer FREE, scheduled pick-ups.
COVID19 Update: items must be located on a porch, in a garage, or outside, as staff members are prohibited from entering residences
All donations are tax-deductible. Revenue from the sale of your donated items helps build Habitat homes with partner families in McLean County. Since the Bloomington ReStore opened in 2009, we have brought in over $5 million on behalf of Habitat McLean County.

The ReStore is always in need of extra assistance. Whether you have an hour or ample time to give, we would love for you to volunteer with us!

What items can you donate?
The following list is a general guideline of donated items we can accept. Because we are a non-profit organization, the ReStore has limited funds available for disposal costs, so we ask that all donations be in good, working condition, free from any major defects, damage, or excessive wear. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at email@example.com.
