Everyone Can Donate!

The ReStore accepts a variety of donated items from businesses and individuals. Your donation is truly making a difference in the lives of families in our community.

We will pick up items that are too big or too heavy for you to transport in your vehicle provided that those items are located in the garage or on the ground floor. Sorry but we can’t pick up items for recycling.

The ReStore is a great place for anyone, from home owners to small businesses, to shop for new and used building materials and furnishings at affordable prices. Proceeds from the ReStore are invested in building homes in Greene and Montgomery Counties for people who need a helping hand, providing them the opportunity to improve their lives and the lives of their children. Homeowners make good neighbors.

All donations are tax-deductible. Please drop off your items at 115 West Riverview Ave., Dayton Ohio 45405 or schedule a pick up for items that are too big or heavy to transport in your vehicle by calling: 937-222-2296.
