The Habitat for Humanity Mankato ReStore is a non-profit home improvement store and donation center that sells new and gently-used products and building materials. We need your donations. Individuals and businesses who donate appliances, furniture, building materials and more give items a second life. You also receive a tax deduction, and most importantly, provide funding to help build homes for those in need in our community.

We receive new and gently-used donations from individuals, building supply stores, contractors, home builders and property managers. Donations made to the ReStore are tax-deductible. All ReStore proceeds support Habitat’s mission of providing affordable housing for those in need. Plus, you’ll be keeping good, reusable items in use and out of landfills. Consider Mankato ReStore when you're looking to donate appliances, furniture, building materials and more.
