Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that exist to support the greater goal of Habitat to serve those in need of safe, decent, affordable housing. This is accomplished by receiving donations of gently used furniture, appliances, building materials, home goods, and more and then selling them to the general public. The money made from the ReStore helps individuals and families in Prince Edward, Buckingham, Cumberland, and Charlotte realize a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
