2014-15 Annual Appeal Letter


Consider a Financial Contribution!

We appreciate (and rely on!) your support the Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse’s community work. You can make a tax-deductible gift to the Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse via the PayPal link below. Your generosity will help us continue to offer affordable reclaimed building materials and help train individuals with barriers to employment in our Deconstruction Workforce Training Program.


All donations must be in saleable condition. Items should be clean and ready to be picked up or dropped off. Before donating an item, please send us a description and picture(s) of the item at donations@evanstonrebuildingwarehouse.org.

Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse greatly appreciates your willingness to donate, but unfortunately our limited floor space places constraints on what we can accept. The high volume of requests and proximity to our warehouse may also limit our ability to do pick-ups in your location.
