Your Donation Makes A Difference!

Moving or downsizing and have items you no longer need? Planning a home renovation or is it just time to declutter 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.
