Donate Materials

How Can I Donate Materials?

Anyone can donate to our ReStore, located at 4732-78A Street Close, Red Deer, Alberta T4P 2J2. We will thankfully accept reusable building materials, furniture and appliances that you no longer want or need! We accept most donations in good and usable condition.

The ReStore will accept donations Monday to Saturday from 9-4:30 pm and provide charitable donation tax receipts upon request for larger donations.

Simply bring your items to the ReStore and notify one of our staff of your donation. We will gladly help you unload your items into the warehouse or quonset.

If your items are too large to bring to the store yourself, we will happily arrange a pick-up from your home. To arrange a pick-up, please call 403-309-0998 ext. 1.
