Habitat for Humanity ReStore

The GCHFH ReStore is another way you can help your community. Your donation of gently used or new household items can help benefit our housing projects throughout Genesee County. If the items are too large to transport, GCHFH will gladly pick them up. Located at 101 Burton St., ReStore is open Tuesday-Saturday, 9am-5pm year-round (except on holidays).
