ReStore Donation Guidelines

Give with Purpose

Everyone deserves a decent and affordable place to call home.

How to Donate

Making a difference in your community has never been easier. Simply swing by our ReStore and drop off your generous donations. Our team will be on hand to assist you with unloading and ensure a seamless process. We’ll provide you with a tax-deductible receipt right then and there!

Don’t worry about time constraints because we accept drop-offs during our normal business hours (Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.). However, if you have larger items or a substantial number of donations, we’ve got you covered too! Simply reach out to us through our donation hotline at (979) 321-2955, or drop us an email at to schedule a donation pick-up. Please note that, due to the high volume of donations scheduled, we may not be able to pick up your donation on the same day that you call.

We believe in making the donation process as smooth as possible, so you can focus on the impact you’re creating in the lives of others. Join us in our mission to build a better community, one donation at a time. Visit our ReStore or get in touch with us today!
