Donation Drop-off

We accept drop-off donations at our location at 308 Otisco Street during business hours - please see our CONTACT page for up-to-date store hours.  

Please come in the ReStore and let a staff member or volunteer know that you have items to donate.  We will gladly come out and verify that we can accept your items.  If we can accept your items, we can assist with bringing them into the ReStore.  If you have a large load or large items, we may ask you to pull around to our loading dock on Niagara Street.

The ReStore will provide you with a donation receipt for your donated items, including item type and quantity.  The ReStore cannot provide values for your items - please consult your tax professional for any potential tax write-offs for your donation.

Donation Pick-up

If you have large, heavy, or a large quantity of items that you are unable to transport, the ReStore offers a donation pick-up service for your convenience.  Our driver will come to your house or business, load your donations, and provide you with a donation receipt.

In order to provide this service, we simply ask for a fuel donation to cover the cost of fuel for our box truck.  This donation starts at $10, and is dependent on location.
