Pitch in for Our Gas Money

Skip the emails and phone calls! Schedule your donation pickup Monday-Friday from 10:00-5:00 in the ReStore! Upon arrival, visit the Customer Service Desk and one of our staff members will connect you with our Donation Coordinator.


If you do not see the item that you are interested in donating, please call the Donations Hotline at 919-354-0892 during our business hours of Monday to Saturday 10AM-6PM or email us your questions:

Due to transportation costs and our limited resources we politely ask that if your donation is small enough to fit in your vehicle that you bring it to the ReStore. We'll be happy to help you unload it.
