Shop or Donate to the ReStore and Help Local Families

The Habitat ReStore in Bakersfield, CA sells new and used building materials to the public at discount prices. Best of all, 100% of the proceeds support Habitat for Humanity-Golden Empire.

Shopping or donating usable building materials to the ReStore contributes to the construction of new Habitat homes and special project repairs through our Home Preservation program. Instead of filling up our landfill, your donations are a valuable source of funds that create affordable housing and help families in need.

Our goals are to:

  • Generate cash flow to support Habitat‘s home building program
  • Keep valuable materials out of local area landfills
  • Provide the community with a source of low cost building materials
  • Provide opportunities to volunteer at the Habitat ReStore
