Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity >

Your Donations Make A Difference!

Moving or downsizing and have items you no longer need? Planning a home renovation or is it just time to de-clutter and renew your space? Instead of tossing out your unwanted household items, donate them to Habitat for Humanity ReStore Aurora and do something good for your community and the environment!

When you donate items to ReStore Aurora, you are helping Fox Valley Habitat achieve its mission to build safe, decent homes for working, lower-income families through our unique, affordable homeownership program. You’re also helping the environment by enabling ReStore Aurora to recycle perfectly reusable household items and provide them with a second home, eliminating landfill dumping to preserve the planet. These items are then sold to the public at affordable prices.

We are currently booked through July for all donation pickups and will not be able to schedule anymore at this time. 

As of August 1, 2022, we will no longer offer free pickup of donations through our ReStore. We will be partnering with the company Resupply for all of your donation pickup needs. There will be a fee for their services and will be able to offer you a wider variety of choices to collect items from your home, as well as being able to move bigger items from inside of your home. However, we will still only accept items that are listed below. The option to schedule a pickup with Resupply will be available through our website very soon. For your convienence, we also have the option for you to drop your donations off at our store at the 2 dropoff areas located behind our building. Thank you!
