What We Do
And Why We Do It.
We pick up your used furniture and household goods and clean them up and repair them, as needed, so they can be donated to Habitat for Humanity for sale in their resale store (reStore). We are happy to pick it up from your curb or, if you need help getting something out of your house or yard, we are glad to do that (and will be certain to wear our masks and gloves for your protection).
We believe everyone should have access to decent housing, and we strongly support Habitat's philosophy of helping people who help themselves ("a hand up, not a handout"). Prior to COVID-19, we volunteered at Habitat for Humanity, both at their resale store and on a construction site building a home for a low income family; the work was very satisfying. But once COVID-19 hit, Habitat for Humanity was forced to halt all in-person volunteering and our opportunities to help Habitat disappeared.
Or so we thought! One day while Ben was rehabilitating a sprained ankle with daily walks through our neighborhood, he noticed lots of good stuff people were putting out on their curbs for free pickup by others. On a single day, he saw a bookshelf, a file cabinet, and chairs, all in decent condition. And we realized we could continue helping Habitat for Humanity by collecting these items, cleaning them up and fixing them, and then donating them to Habitat's resale store so they could be resold to the public and raise money for Habitat for Humanity's mission. This is how reGifting for Good was born!
Most people we know have a lot of things they may no longer want or need, and these items may be really useful to someone else. If you have extra stuff, we hope that you will contact us! We are happy to clean and fix things in our garage so they will look good and sell for a good price in the reStore. And it helps us all if your unwanted furniture and household goods can be reused and kept out of the landfills.
