The ReStore is a home improvement thrift store whose mission is:
- to provide additional funding to support Fort Bend Habitat’s building goals
- to expand opportunities to serve a broader base of the low-income community by providing low-cost materials
- to divert construction and household materials from landfills and protect the environment
The Fort Bend Habitat for Humanity ReStore needs your donations…of almost any items you take out of your home. Especially needed are doors, windows, cabinets (kitchen or other) and working appliances ( 10 years or less). But almost any building or remodeling material that’s in good shape can be recycled through the ReStore, saving you dumping costs and providing a tax deduction as well. Equally important, your donations will go back into the community to help people who are upgrading their homes. The ReStore resells your new or used items (as well as corporate donations) for 50% to 70% off retail prices. All operating profits from ReStore sales go into Habitat’s building program, helping provide adequate housing for Fort Bend County families.
Donations may be dropped off Wednesday, Thursday, Friday between 10am and 5:30pm and Saturday between 8am and 3:30pm. (During store hours, up to 30 minutes before the store closes).
ReStore does provide donation pickup services once a week when scheduled in advance. Please contact our office for more information.

- Stocks and Bond Gifts
A charitable gift of stocks or bonds provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously sharing with others. A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation. In addition to helping FBHFH, you may diversify away from low-basis, long-term holdings into other assets that will better suit your current needs. If you would like to discuss a gift of stocks or bonds, please contact us at (281) 403-0708.
