Donation Policy

The Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Connecticut store, This ‘n’ That from Habitat, is very grateful for many of the generous donors that have supplied us with a variety of useful items to stock our shelves. This has enabled us to raise significant funds to help underwrite our building goals. However, some donations have proven to be a liability as they were not salable. Factors include: damaged and soiled items and those with limited appeal. This has burdened us with unforeseen storage and disposal costs. As a result, we have restructured the donation process to make our operation more efficient:

For the moment we will refuse the following: 

  • Older TVs
  • Dishwashers
  • Outdated Electronics such as Computers and Printers
  • Entertainment Centers
  • Particle Board Furniture, except Bookcases
  • Upholstered Furniture
  • Computer Tables
  • Luggage
  • Dining Room Tables
  • Clothing
  • Bed frames, Headboards and Mattresses
  • Books

If you have any questions, please call the Store at 860-824-9839.
