Habitat ReStores Making a Difference

Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, home goods, building materials and appliances at a fraction of the retail price. The Habitat ReStores help Habitat for Humanity of Dane County fund the construction, rehabilitation or repair of affordable homes locally in Dane County. The proceeds benefit Dane County’s larger mission of building homes, communities and hope.
