Our ReStores accept donations of new and used building materials, appliances and home décor items from homeowners, businesses and trades.
The ReCap Story
Since opening in 2007, our ReStore has taken donations of used appliances and sold them at a nominal cost to the public. Profits from used appliance sales support Habitat for Humanity’s traditional home building programs. To provide increased financial support for affordable home construction and to provide greater value to ReStore customers, the ReStore Certified Appliance project, or ReCap, was introduced in June, 2012.
In the beginning, used appliances were sold “as is.” Both the customer and the Restore took a risk. With the launch of ReCap, all appliances are processed through ReStore’s new Appliance Service Center. Once an appliance is processed through the ReCap program, the unit receives a warrantee for 1 month.
