Other Ways to Give

If you would like to give to Habitat for Humanity's local projects, but do not currently have any items to donate to the ReStore, please consider making a monetary donation directly to Habitat of McLean County. You can also support us by shopping through Ebay for Charity, PayPal Giving Fund, and AmazonSmile.  


We currently have a special need for a truck, trailer, or any vehicle that can expand our free donation pick-up service. Please email our team at if you have any leads.
