Can I make an appointment online?
Do I have to wear a mask?
Will employees help me load my car?
To comply with social distancing, our team cannot load the items into your car. They will assist moving them from the store to the loading area.
What happens with my material donation? Does it go into a home built by Habitat?
Why don’t you accept certain items?
Some of our donation restrictions are dictated by state or federal law (mattresses, boxsprings, cribs, halogen lamps, etc). Other restrictions are based on our retail experience and the limited space that we have to work with. If an item doesn’t sell in our ReStore, we have to pay to dispose of it, which takes away from our mission of building affordable housing in Cape May County.
How do I drop off a donation?
We do ask that you call ahead to plan your drop off time.
Directions: GSP Exit 10, west past hospital, on right hand side next to Big Lots (behind TJ Maxx/Homegoods).
When can I drop off donations?
Can I write the donation off of my taxes?
DOES THE ReStore REPAIR DONATED ITEMS AND MATERIALS?
DOES THE ReStore ACCEPT SCRAP METAL AND NONWORKING APPLIANCES FOR RECYCLING?
How much is my donation worth?
Can I come back to pick up the items I purchased?
Yes. We will hold your items, after purchase, for two (2) business days. If the item is left longer than that, it will result in a $5/day storage fee for three (3) additional days. After that, the item is forfeit and will be cycled back into our inventory.
Delivery within Cape May County can be scheduled for curbside drop-off for an additional fee. Ask a store ambassador for information.
How much does a donation pickup cost?
How far out do I need to schedule for a donation pick up?
Do you go inside of the house?
I have a small box of items to donate. Will you pick this up?
I have another question / I want to add an item / I want to cancel.
When do you schedule pickups?
What time can I expect you at my home?
We schedule donation pickups for Monday through Friday in two different blocks:
Mornings (8am-12pm) | Afternoons (1pm-4pm)
Can I leave the donation outside?
Yes! Weather permitting, you may leave items in the front of the house or garage with a note that says, “Donation” to ensure that it is not taken away by somebody else. We are not able to enter backyards without someone present.
I only live a few miles outside of Cape May County. Will you pick up here?
We don’t have the resources to go outside of our normal pickup areas at this time. For residential pickups outside of Cape May County, please visit habitat.org/restores to search for your local Habitat for Humanity ReStore that can assist with your material donation.
