To reduce building costs, and to stock our Store, Habitat relies on donations of new and gently used building materials, furniture, used appliances, lighting, flooring, tile, doors, windows, cabinets, sinks, toilets, tools, paint, and other home improvement materials.
Donations are accepted at the Habitat Store during the business hours (Tue -Fri from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sat 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.).
Call (208) 743-1300 to check quality, age and usability of your items.
Items are accepted based on our ability to sell them in the Habitat Store to fulfill our mission of raising funds to build more affordable homes in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. Merchandise that is not in good condition, worn, soiled, dirty or defective only adds to our expense since we often end up transporting it to the landfill.
To schedule a pick-up of your donated items, please call (208) 743-1300. We pick up in Lewiston, Clarkston, Asotin and Lapwai by appointment.
For the safest and most efficient collection of your donation, please follow these simple guidelines:
- Have all materials boxed (if applicable), stacked and readily accessible
- Mark all items with a note that reads “For Habitat for Humanity”
- Absolutely no hazardous materials or waste items are accepted
- We are unable to haul away trash or sort items from those that do not meet our criteria
