When you donate your gently used items to the ReStore, you’re helping us change lives by making affordable home ownership a reality! You’re also keeping perfectly usable items from needlessly going to waste in a landfill!
Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity operates three ReStores, one in Ocean Isle Beach, one in Southport and one in Leland. All have a friendly group of staff and volunteers who will gladly accept your donation or assist you with items for sale. Each store is stocked with a wide variety of building materials and household items from windows to furniture.
Our ReStores are open from 10 AM to 4 PM Monday- Saturday. You may call ahead to see if an item is available or to schedule a pick up of donated items.
Contractors appreciate our pick-up service for reusable materials, eliminating hauling and dumping fees. Building suppliers often donate discontinued or returned items, and people remodeling their homes give new purpose to their old appliances, cabinets, windows, doors, and fixtures through donations to the ReStores. Anyone planning to move can skip the packing or yard sale hassle by bringing their unwanted furnishings to a ReStore. We can not only pick up your donated items, we will gladly provide you a receipt for a tax deduction. Contact our ReStores for more information.
If you have items you’d like to donate, we have several options to help you donate your gently used items. You can always visit any of our three Brunswick County locations and our staff will be happy assist you in offloading your items. You can also contact us by phone to schedule a donation pick-up for qualifying items.
