what is the ReStore?
Since we receive new donations every day, there is never a set inventory – It’s a whole new store with each donation!
For the do-it-yourselfers, contractors, and collectors, the ReStore is the first place to visit for inexpensive renovations. The best thing you can do is to stop by and see for yourself all that we offer. You may get an idea of the types of items we carry by looking at the DONATIONS section. You never know what you will find at the ReStore.
The proceeds generated by the ReStore sales go to support Habitat for Humanity Kingston Limestone Region build affordable, energy-efficient houses for deserving families while reducing the number of used materials that are headed for overflowing landfills.

please keep bringing us your cans!
Habitat for Humanity Kingston Limestone Region will take ALL of your empty aluminum pop cans. All proceeds go towards building homes in our community. Simply collect empty aluminum cans in large plastic bags and drop them off at the ReStore 607 Gardiners Road anytime.
