A Donation Blitz is an opportunity for ReStore volunteers and employees to come directly to your neighborhood, church, school or business to collect donations! The Donation Blitz makes it easier than ever to donate your items as we tailor the event to your space and needs. Plus, it helps Habitat for Humanity cut down on operational costs by collecting a large amount of donations in one fell swoop. A single Blitz can raise thousands of dollars for Habitat for Humanity over the course of just a few hours! Plus, a hosting a Blitz is a great way for businesses and organizations to publicly show support for Habitat for Humanity.
How Does It Work?
We will work with your Home Owners Association, Church, School, or Business to tailor a drive specific to your space and needs. Through our combined efforts we will spread the word to your community about the Blitz. A Donation Blitz typically lasts anywhere from 3-6 hours on a date that will be convenient for your community. Donations to Habitat for Humanity ReStore are tax deductible with donation receipts distributed during the event.
What Kind Of Donation Blitz Is Right For My Community?
- The Drive-Thru Blitz – Ideal for places with large parking lots, we will set up an easy drive-thru collection Blitz that can be open to surrounding community members to donate resaleable and recyclable items.
- The Neighborhood Blitz – We will work with your Home Owner’s Association or individuals to dedicate an entire Saturday of pick-ups to your neighborhood. Participating residents register for the Blitz and the day of the event our staff efficiently picks up donations from their homes.
- The Spot Blitz – Ideal for communal spaces like businesses and churches, we partner with the organization to encourage patrons to drop off their items at a designated spot in the location. The organization may choose to have the collection go on for a week or just one day. At the end of the collection, we will come and load the donated items.
