Donate to the ReStore

Your donations are vital to the success of Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph!

We gratefully accept donations of new and gently used household items that are clean and in working order. Check out a list of items we accept below.

You can drop off your donation at the receiving doors at each of our three ReStores during our posted receiving hours.

We also offer a free pickup service to make donating to the ReStore easy! This service is recommended for large or multi-item donations. It is important that donations be easily accessible without the use of stairs (i.e. on the ground floor close to the front door, via elevator, at the front of the garage, or outdoors).

To book our pickup service, please click “schedule your pickup” below, or send us an email at  dispatch@habitatwdg.ca for more information.

While optional, we ask that you consider making a monetary donation upon completion of your successful pickup to help us cover the various costs involved in offering this free service.
