Q. What types of cabinets can be donated? A. We accept any cabinets or countertops, in any finish.
Q. What if my cabinets are falling apart? A. That’s okay. Habitat ReStore accepts cabinets in any condition. Even cabinets in poor condition may be sold or used for parts. Every donation makes a difference.
Q. How do I schedule a pick-up? A. Let your Cabinet Gallery specialist know you plan to donate your cabinets, and we’ll do the rest. After removal of old countertops and cabinets from your residential property, we will work with the nearest Habitat for Humanity to schedule free pick-up at your convenience.
Q. Who will pick up my cabinets, and how will they know I want to be part of this program? A. Habitat from Humanity trucks will conduct the pick-up. When we schedule, we will let them know you’re participating in our program. Our Cabinet Gallery specialists will place the old cabinets in an area of the homeowner’s choosing that’s convenient for pick-up.
Q. Once they leave my house, where will my old cabinets go? A. Cabinets donated within the service areas of Franklin, Bedford, and Roanoke affiliates will be picked up by the Roanoke affiliate and sold in their ReStore. The Greater Lynchburg ReStore will collect and sell all donated cabinets within their service area.
Q. When do I get my tax receipt? A. Upon pick-up of the cabinets, donors will receive a receipt, along with a copy of IRS Form 8283, Noncash Charitable Contribution.
Q. How do my cabinets help Habitat build more houses? A. Habitat ReStore is a chain of nonprofit retail stores that sells new and gently used home improvement items, building materials, and furniture. The stores, which are locally owned and operated by Habitat affiliates, use their proceeds toward building homes for those who need them most in our region.
