Habitat for Humanity begins ‘Stock the ReStore’ donation drive

Habitat for Humanity Prince William County is closing its current location at 9506 Center Street, Manassas on Dec. 31. On Jan. 23 it will reopen in the former Food Lion space at 10159 Hastings Drive, at the corner of Hastings Drive and Dumfries Road near the Fairgrounds. In preparation for the opening, Habitat is holding a “Stock the ReStore” donation drive.

The goal of the donation drive is to increase the ReStore’s inventory before the store’s grand opening on Saturday, Jan. 23. The ReStore accepts donations of new and gently used household items and building materials such as furniture, appliances, books, cabinetry, windows, hardware, lumber, tools, flooring, lighting, home décor and more. All donations are tax-deductible.

“At year’s end, many people are cleaning out closets and attics or remodeling and redecorating. We want to encourage them to donate their gently used items to the ReStore,” Sam Druetzler, Operations Director for Habitat for Humanity, was quoted as saying in a press release. “Donating to the ReStore keeps those items out of the landfill, someone gets a good deal when they repurpose the item and it’s all a great way to support Habitat for Humanity Prince William County.”

ReStore staff will be on site at the Hastings location to accept donations in the coming weeks from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturdays (they will be closed on New Year’s Day). If donors have large items they cannot bring in themselves, they can schedule a pickup for a later time. Pickups are scheduled by calling 703-369-6145 or by e-mailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
