Closed from Sunday, March 15, until further notice

In an effort to protect our staff, volunteers, donors, customers and the families we seek to serve, we have taken unprecedented steps to close the offices, the ReStore and all volunteer construction. Our first priority is always to support the health and safety of our people — and to take a calm and informed approach to address this challenging situation.

With this in mind, effective Sunday, March 15, 2020, Morris Habitat has taken the following actions –

  • Close the ReStore to the public until further notice. Please check back for updates.
  • ReStore donation scheduled pickups will continue in the short term.
  • Donation door remains open Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. for donation drop-offs and for customers to pick up their purchased items on hold.
  • ReStore Collection e-commerce will continue to operate with items currently on eBay for sale. For a limited time, we are offering free curbside delivery to local addresses within 10 miles of the store for all online purchases over $25.00.
  • Close all volunteer construction.
  • Close our offices to the public until further notice (with office staff telecommuting).
  • Institute stringent health and safety protocols throughout the organization, ReStore warehouse/sales floor, donation pickups and drop offs and construction sites.

To schedule a ReStore donation pick-up or ReStore donation drop-off, please visit the ReStore Donate web page for forms to fill out and for guidelines describing what we accept. You can also email the ReStore staff at If you have further questions about donations, please dial 973.891.1934 extension 210 and leave a message for our staff.

For all other inquiries, please email our general mailbox at or leave a message at 973.891.1934.  All calls and emails will be returned within 24 hours.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and we will re-open as soon as it is safe to do so.

This disruption to our workflow will most certainly affect our fundraising. The families we seek to serve are already vulnerable; many of them in positions at the forefront of the crisis — health care workers, civil servants, service sector employees; those to whom a missed paycheck can mean catastrophe. If you intended to volunteer, to visit the ReStore, or to donate – please show your support with a donation to keep us building a better place as we face down this pandemic.

Thank you for your continued support in staying safe and healthy during this challenging time. We will make it through this crisis, and it will make us stronger.

Blair Schleicher Wilson, Chief Executive Officer
