Established in July of 2008, the Michigan Regional Distribution Center (MRDC) accepts large donations of products and services throughout the state and redistributes them to Habitat for Humanity of Michigan’s more than 76 affiliates and 40+ ReStores. The MRDC is the first of its kind in the country.
Why should companies donate?
It’s a way to put unwanted inventories to use or re-use.
MRDC accepts building supplies, furniture or almost any other product or service. If it cannot be re-sold through our network of Habitat ReStores, we can trade it for profit through our barter and trade network.
It’s a tax deduction
Donations are tax deductible and help further the mission of Habitat for Humanity to build homes in partnership with families in need.
It’s environmentally responsible
When companies donate unwanted product, they save waste hauling costs and prevent tons of waste from going to landfills. For every $1 million in product donated, 650 tons are kept out of landfills.
It furthers Habitat’s mission
All proceeds go to building simple, decent homes in partnership with families in need. When MRDC generates $1 million in product, at least 8 additional Habitat homes can be built.
It’s a way for Habitat ReStores to build their inventory
Michigan’s Habitat Restores can take advantage of the MRDC’s buying power and purchase items to put in their ReStore inventory.
It’s a way for Habitat affiliates to purchase lost cost building supplies
Michigan’s Habitat Restores can take advantage of the MRDC’s buying power and purchase building supplies often at cents on the dollar.
