Donate to Habitat for Humanity ReStore

Donate your flooring products after market.

You’ve got stuff. They need stuff. From flooring to appliances, cabinets to lumber, Habitat for Humanity has been working towards a world where everyone has a decent place to live since 1976. The Flooring Markets are thrilled to be working with Habitat for Humanity ReStores across our markets to ensure that your donated flooring products end up in the hands and homes of people who need them.  If you are looking to donate your materials at the close of the market, please click the link below to sign up.

Habitat ReStores are independently owned reuse stores operated by local Habitat for Humanity organizations. ReStores accept donations and sell a constantly rotating inventory of high-quality merchandise at a fraction of the retail price, while diverting reusable household items and building materials from area landfills.

Sign Up To Donate
Click here to sign up.

Exhibitors are encouraged to donate rather than throw away products on-site. Exhibitors must completely dismantle and stack flooring onto the donation pallet, label the product with our CHARITY DONATION label and we will take it from there.

REMEMBER: your booth area must be clean and clear of all product after market in order to avoid post market cleaning charges as outlined in your exhibitor services kit posted within the Exhibitor Zone.
