About the Donation Process

The Caln ReStore is owned and operated by Habitat for Humanity of Chester County. Proceeds from the ReStore directly fund our mission to build affordable homes, offering strength, stability, and independence to families in the community.

The ReStore sells new and gently used furniture, appliances, cabinets, building materials, and more. Donations to the ReStore may be tax-deductible. A receipt will be provided at the time of donation.

Large or bulk donations requiring two people and a truck may be eligible for a free pick up by the donation team. If scheduling a pickup, we request that donations are located on the first floor or ground level of your home with no more than two or three steps.  ***Please note that due to the Pandemic, ALL ITEMS MUST BE OUTSIDE THE HOME FOR PICK UP UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Smaller donations or those already having transport can be brought to the ReStore. The Caln ReStore is open to donation drop-offs Wednesday through Saturday from 10am to 4:30pm.
