Habitat for Humanity regularly ranks as one of the top 20 homebuilders in the United States and is the largest privately held homebuilder. For example, in each one of the homes we build, we require approximately 150 pounds of nails and 400 two-by-fours. With the average Habitat house consisting of 1,200 square feet and three bedrooms, these numbers add up fast—so donations of building materials from corporate manufacturers are welcome!
Whether your company has a few truckloads of building materials, or warehouses full of them across the country, our procurement and logistics team works to make donating as easy as possible. We can arrange one-time donations, or establish long-term partnerships with recurring donations. As far as restock, we’ve handled hotel chain remodels, going out of business events, and everything in between. We’re happy to take these unwanted items off your hands.
Additionally, in some cases, retailers with overstock donate goods. Donations like these are usually sold in our ReStore home improvement stores, with the proceeds benefiting Habitat. Learn more about ReStore Donations.
We have become experts in creativity and working with corporations who want to donate building materials for house construction or overstock items for resale, so don’t hesitate to contact us about your potential donation.
