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.

Donations are accepted at the ReStore Tuesday – Saturday between 9:00AM – 4:00PM only. Our 2 donation doors, marked for furniture or hardware/bulding materials, are located behind the building. 

Free pickup for larger items (furniture & appliances):*

Our free pickup is offered as a convenience service only and is different from a moving company. Our pickup crew is not equipped to move furniture out of a house or up/down any stairs. Due to safety concerns, and per our insurance policies, they will NOT be able to come inside of your home and all items must be in your garage, on driveway, or porch in order for them to be taken. No exceptions will be made. Please remember that once our drivers are at your home, they will have the right to refuse any items based on quality and condition of the items. 

*We schedule pickups in the following towns onlyAurora, North Aurora, Batavia, Geneva, Montgomery, Oswego, Yorkville, Plano, Sandwich, Bristol, Sugar Grove, Elburn, Maple Park, Big Rock, and Kaneville. We service the Southern Kane County area. If you are outside of this area, please contact the ReStore closest to you. 

A few tips for an easy pickup:

  1. Everything needs to be boxed/bundled or staged and ready to go at time of pickup.
  2. We will only take items located on porches, driveways, or in a garage.
  3. Under no circumstances will our drivers be able to enter your home.
  4. Driver will have a donation receipt available for you at time of pickup.

Please note: At time of pickup, our drivers reserve the right to refuse any items based on the quality, condition, and our current inventory.

If you are remodeling your home, please ask the project person/company to donate your old items.
