Everyone Wins

Everyone Wins at the ReStore!

When you donate and shop at the ReStore, you are changing the lives of everyone in our community. When you donate your gently-used items, our community benefits because materials are recycled instead of dumped into the waste stream. Our resources are conserved, and then you can purchase quality materials at deeply discounted prices!

In addition, proceeds from every donation and purchase go toward building affordable homes in Sumter. Your support helps make affordable homeownership a reality for a family in our community!

How to Donate


If you have larger items to donate and need assistance getting your items to the Sumter Habitat for Humanity ReStore, we offer a donation pick-up service. Simply call our donation pick-up line 803-934-9749 to schedule a donation pick-up.


Bring your items to the back of the ReStore and look for the donation drop off sign. Donation drop offs are accepted Tuesday - Friday from 10am-5pm and Saturday from 9am-2pm.


We accept usable merchandise in gently used condition. Additional constraints may apply.

Donations may be tax deductible.

Please note that guidelines are subject to change and we reserve the right to refuse any donations we feel do not meet the requirements. If you have any questions regarding donations please call our donation hotline at 803-934-9749
