Habitat for Humanity of Lenawee County greatly appreciates in-kind gifts from individuals, businesses, and organizations. Each of these gifts aids in the construction and repair of Habitat for Humanity homes.
There are several factors that Habitat must consider before accepting land donations, including location (the land must be in Habitat’s general service area), access to services (such as water and sewer), zoning (the area must be located on land designated for housing) and more.
You can support our new home construction program through donations of building materials, subcontractor services, and construction tools and supplies.
We build an average of 3 homes per year and complete many critical home repairs. We partner with businesses to help offset our construction costs by donating new building materials. Our ongoing home construction needs are best served by businesses that are willing to provide specific materials that meet our requirements on a regular basis. For example, a company might agree to furnish vinyl siding for a set number of homes per year.
If you are an individual interested in making a one-time donation of building materials (for example, excess tile from a flooring project at your home), we encourage you to donate them to our ReStore*, where they can be resold and the profits directed to our affordable housing programs.
Our homes are built primarily with volunteer labor, but we do subcontract some professional services, including roofing, plumbing, electrical and HVAC. We welcome professional subcontractors who are willing to donate their services.
If you’d like to donate office items or other non-construction related items or services to Habitat for Humanity of Lenawee County, please contact our main office at (517) 265-6157. If you are interested in donating to our ReStore, please review our list of Accepted Donations.
