Shopping and Donating at Our Stores Safely

Shopping and Donating at Our Stores Safely

Updated on July 19, 2022

The safety of our staff and volunteers is first and foremost at ReStore. We've updated our protocols and rules in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that you should know before visiting. 


Masks are optional regardless of vaccination status. We encourage mask usage when situations call for it.

Stay home when sick. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or come in close contact with someone who has, please stay home. 


When dropping off donations we are following a no contact policy for the foreseeable future. Our staff is small, and we can only help ONE donor at a time safely in the drop off donation lane.

When you make a drop off donation, please wait in your vehicle until it is your turn to donate. When it is your turn, allow us access to your donation and then return to your vehicle. We will unload the donations that we are able to accept and provide you with a donation receipt if you choose to accept one.

We may not be able to accept every item you would like to donate. Please check out our donation guidelines prior to donating with us.

Donations are tax deductible. Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore will provide a donation receipt so you can use it as a tax deduction. Another perk for donating to ReStore! (MN Certificate of Exempt Status Number: ES 30657, Federal Tax ID: 363363171).

Please stay in your car. We will unload your donation. We can help one donor at a time in the donation lane.
