New construction materials – for use in our builds.

Land for future Habitat builds – lots suitable for family, semi-detached or townhome developments are needed and may qualify for a charitable tax receipt.

Corporate Donations Program

Donating to our ReStore will help you:

  • Move inventory that needs movement.
  • Free up your warehouse space and reduce your costs.
  • Be more environmentally friendly. ReStores reduce the amount of new and used materials headed to landfills by thousands of tonnes per year.
  • Inspire companies and their employees to help build homes for those in need in the community in which they work and live.


Donations can be picked up, at no cost to you!

Donations will be recorded and based on the donation amount, a tax receipt can be provided. Habitat for Humanity Mid-Vancouver Island can recognize your organization’s total donations with a post on our website and/or your name on a plaque on our Donor Wall inside the ReStore.
