The success of our Habitat ReStore depends on receiving and preparing donations of building materials for sale to the general public. The proceeds from the sales help fund DuPage Habitat’s mission of providing affordable housing to partner families. In addition, the ReStore provides low-cost building materials to property owners and prevents usable materials from ending up in landfills.Deconstruction volunteers support the mission by going into buildings and homes slated for demolition, renovation, or remodeling and removing reusable items, which are then sold in the ReStore. Items that are removed include: lighting fixtures, cabinets, doors, appliances, garage doors, furnaces and other building materials that can be sold. The proceeds from these sales are then used to build future homes for Habitat.
