The Habitat ReStores are nonprofit donation centers and thrift stores that help support Green Mountain Habitat’s homebuilding efforts in Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle, and Lamoille counties. By donating your new and gently used furniture, appliances, home décor, and clothing, you help start a chain reaction of investment that builds homes, community, and hope throughout Northwest Vermont.

Donating is easy—drop items off during store hours, or schedule a FREE donation pick up.
