Top 10 Items on our Wish List

At Macomb County Habitat for Humanity, we are always accepting donations! Here are the top 10 items on our Wish List:

  1. A 20-foot box truck, new or used – Purpose: To pick up donated household and construction items which are then sold in our ReStores.
  2. A 20-25,000 square foot building on a major street in Macomb County that would be rent free for the first year. We will sign a long-term lease.  Building must have open floor space and a delivery bay.  Purpose: To be used as a retail store.
  3. Gas gift cards of any denomination – one of our biggest costs is fuel for our vehicles.
  4. Donations of tools and other construction-related items – Purpose: To be used to build or rehab homes in Macomb County which will be sold to a partner family who has invested 250 hours of sweat equity and will purchase the home at completion.
  5. Lunch Donations from Restaurants – We are building at least three days a week with very large groups.  We would like to offer the groups lunch and are seeking local restaurants who will take one day a year and make a nice lunch for the volunteers, many of whom will support that restaurant in days ahead.
  6. People who will pledge a $1 a day for a year – If folks sent us $1 a day or $7 a week; this organization would be able to build more homes! Purpose: Build homes, operating support.
  7. A truck full of donations, new and used for the ReStores – We would like to have the community fill a truck with new and used items during the month of December for the store and the families we serve. Cash donations are also very welcome!
  8. Companies who would like to partner with us to build a home from the basement up – Macomb Habitat can build a home for $100,000.  Whose company would like to raise $50k and make a house a home?
  9. New computers
  10. Items for the ReStore – Best selling items are couches.  We appreciate any kitchen=related item, outdoor items, construction-related items. We pick up at no cost to the donor!
