Partnering with the Austin Habitat for Humanity

Donate Furniture and unused construction material in Travis County

Partnering with Habitat for Humanity is a privilege. Do you have clean usable furniture or an abundance of unused construction materials? Have you remodeled or do you have clean, working appliances that could use a new home? Consider donating these items to Habitat for Humanity. The folks at Habitat work to give back to deserving individuals across Central Texas.

The Habitat for Humanity was founded in Americus Georgia in 1976. It is is a non-profit with a simple mission to build simple, decent affordable housing. They have a simple and honorable mission. As part of their organization, Habitat also has the ReStore. We partner with the Austin ReStore. The ReStore is a retail store that sells new and used building material, furniture and other items donated by businesses and the community. The funds from the ReStore are used to help fund the constructions of homes! So, indirectly, you can participate in the building of homes by supporting the ReStore. A little known fact is that the ReStore funds 100% of the administrative cost for the Habitat affiliate! This means that 100% of donor funds go toward the construction and rehabilitation of projects. How great is that!

Imagine how great it will feel to know that your items have found a new home. Rather than adding to the Austin landfill, your unneeded treasures can be used by someone in need. Most times, it doesn’t make sense to try and sell older appliances online. You don’t know who will be coming to your house and you never know if they will be happy with their purchase. There is more risk than reward!

If you have small items, it is easy to drop items off at Habitat. They are located in Austin. You can find out more about their amazing local programs here. The Habitat for Humanity ReStores.
