COVID-19 Response

Habitat for Humanity South Central MN has taken many actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Most notably, we have closed our office to all visitors. Staff will only be available through phone or email.

We have also closed our ReStore to shoppers, but we will continue to accept donations through March 27th.

Below are the different ways our work and services have temporarily changed:


The Mankato ReStore is closed to shoppers.

We WILL continue to take donations through Friday, March 27th.
Donations will be accepted from 10:00 - 4:00 Tuesday - Saturday. 

Beginning Saturday, March 28th through Friday, April 10th the store will be closed for both shopping and donations due to the Stay at Home order in Minnesota. We ask that you please do not leave items outside our drop off area! 

All ReStore volunteer activities have been cancelled for the time being. 

The ReStore staff can be reached at 507-388-6682 if you have any questions. Thank you for your patience during this pandemic; we look forward to opening the store again soon.
