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 offer 2 options for scheduling a donation pickup or you may drop them off at our ReStore.  

Drop Off Donations - Please check list below for items we are currently accepting:

For your convenience, you may drop off any donations that we are currently accepting at the 2 drop off areas located behind our ReStore building at 2302 W. Indian Trail, Aurora 60506 from 9am-4pm Tues-Sat. Donations are not accepted after 4pm. If you have bigger sized items (furniture, cabinets, appliances etc.), or a larger amount of items to donate, please email pictures to admin@restoreaurora.com before dropping the items off and we will contact you after reviewing them.

Any questions about items for donation drop off can be directed to: admin@restoreaurora.com
