**Due to impact of the of the coronavirus the stores will be modifying their hours to work to thoroughly disinfect the stores daily, adjust for our limited staff and to help promote a safe and responsible environment for everyone. Below are some of the changes to be implemented:
The Alexandria, Chantilly, and Herndon stores will open with modified hours of Monday- Friday 10am- 4pm. We will be offering donation drop off service & shopping opportunities with the modifications listed below.
For shopping we are allowing a maximum of 10 people in the stores at a time. All shoppers will be required to have on a mask or a reasonable mouth covering and customers are required to practice the minimum 6 feet space allowance for social distancing. Contactless debit and credit card purchases are preferred.
Donation Store Drop Off
Donations are currently being accepted at the Alexandria and Chantilly stores only – all items will be screened before being accepted. Items must be in good working order and gently used. Please contact the store with any questions before heading to the store.
Please note for the safety of our staff and customers, we have implemented a no-contact drop-off process. If you are donating a heavy item please bring someone to help you unload the item and wear a mask or mouth covering during the drop-off process. Donation receipts will be available for you to pick up at the drop-off location.
Donation Pickup service
We are currently not offering daily pickups but may selectively offer this service based on staff team capacity. Please check back for updates on the website or contact our stores for more details.**
Donate goods to Habitat NOVA’s ReStores to clear clutter and make a difference in our community. Your donation is tax deductible. Proceeds raised by our ReStores benefit the mission of Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia to bring people together to build strong and stable homes and communities.
How Does Your Donation Help?
Our ReStores sell items donated from businesses and individuals in our community. Proceeds from the sales go directly to Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia and help us ensure strong and stable families and communities. In addition, by repurposing furniture, appliances, and building materials our ReStores actively help reduce area landfill waste each year. That benefits us all!
What Can You Donate?
We accept new and gently used appliances, furniture, building materials, household goods and more from individuals and companies. Our ReStores are unique and we only accept what we can sell. There are certain items (e.g. clothing, mattresses, and bedding, stained or torn upholstered furniture, etc.) that we cannot accept due to state and local health regulations. Please refer to the graphic on the right for information on what we can and cannot accept.
We only accept what we can sell! We do not repair broken items, so please do not donate items that are broken or do not work!
Please understand that our dumpsters represent a significant cost, and are for Habitat NOVA’s ReStore use only. Regretfully, we cannot accommodate requests to throw away items that we are unable to accept as donations.
How Do You Donate?
Our Habitat NOVA ReStore staff and volunteers make the donation process as simple as possible. You can always donate goods in person. All our Northern Virginia Habitat ReStores also offer free pick-up of large items.
Note that donation hours differ from store hours! Please do not leave your donated items after hours!
Drop Off / In Person: When dropping off a donation, please pull up to the loading dock at the rear of the building. We have staff and volunteers available to help you unload.
