about

Charleston Habitat for Humanity is proud to own and operate a ReStore to serve the greater Charleston community! The ReStore is located at 731 Meeting Street in downtown Charleston. Beginning June 18th, we will have new store hours of operation:

SUN/MON              CLOSED

TUES/WED/FRI     10AM-6PM

THURS                   10AM-6PM

Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a nonprofit home improvement store and donation center that sells new and gently used furniture, home accessories, building materials, and appliances to the public at a fraction of the retail price and with no sales tax. Proceeds are used to build homes locally in Charleston, North Charleston, and West Ashley.  Please drop by our location to view our inventory and see what sales we have this week!  Once you purchase an item, we can hold it for 48 hours while you make arrangements for delivery. Currently, we do not have the resources to make deliveries. 

To speak with a ReStore Staff member, please call the main number at (843) 579-0777 during our hours of operation (Tuesday through Saturday).

Requests for pickup service from a residence, business, construction site, or storage unit can be made up to four weeks before the appointment and we recommend scheduling at least 72 hours in advance.  Our drivers will come to your location, remove the items to be donated, and give you a tax donation receipt.  Our drivers cannot disassemble or disconnect any item and we ask that everything be boxed and ready to go. Our drivers are authorized to refuse any item that is broken, not ready for pick-up, or on the list of unacceptable items.

Donations can be dropped off directly at 731 Meeting Street between the hours of 10am-4pm Tuesday through Friday and 9am-3pm on Saturday.  Please no curbside drop-offs! Things left on the curb are often confused as trash.

 

volunteer

We are always looking for volunteers at the Charleston Habitat ReStore! With the help of our volunteers, we can reduce costs and provide a great service to the community. Volunteers can expect to organize and price donated items, provide assistance to ReStore customers, and assist in keeping the store clean and tidy. We take volunteers Tuesday through Friday from 9am-1pm and 1pm-5pm and on Saturday from 8:30am-12:30pm and 12pm-4pm. We are closed on Sunday and Monday.

Volunteers join us from all walks of life. We have retirees, students, churches, businesses, and individuals. They all share a common trait - a positive attitude and a willingness to serve their community.

To find out more about volunteering at the Charleston Habitat ReStore, please call (843) 579-0777 and ask to speak with a ReStore employee or email restore@charlestonhabitat.org. You will be scheduled for a mandatory orientation meeting, which takes place at 8:45am on Thursdays. You can start volunteering the same day as your orientation or you can sign-up for another day on our volunteer calendar. Please do not miss your scheduled orientation as you cannot volunteer until this requirement is completed.
