What is the ReVive Centre?
Whether you're an expert with tools, an artist or an aspiring Pinterest-er, the ReVive DIY Centre has a project waiting for you. Do you love Do-It-Yourself projects? ReVive is all about DIY with purpose.
The ReVive Centre is Habitat HM's multipurpose product development centre. ReVive recycles, transforms and breathes new life into donated products and materials that would otherwise be sent to the landfill. As a green-oriented initiative and the very first of its kind, the ReVive Centre is an innovative, unique idea that helps raise funds for Habitat’s operational costs and home building program, empowering low-income families in our community.
Volunteers and corporate volunteer teams help us transform donated material and products that are in need of renewing, up-cycling or refinishing. Participants have the opportunity to learn some incredible new skills and are able to flex their creative muscles in our Workshop.
Get Involved As A Volunteer!
We'll teach you everything you need to know to flex those creative muscles or we'll give you the space to putter around and see what you can come up with.
Book A Team Build
Grab your friends and co-workers and come out for a fun day of team building. You'll get to upcycle existing product and give it a new life OR you can choose to build new items in our fully-equipped workshop.
"It was a great experience, all our volunteers had a good time and we want to do it again! Thank you for the opportunity, and please share our thanks with the team lead and supervisor, they were awesome."
Elodie, Nissan Canada
"We had a fantastic time at the ReVive Store, the entire ReVive Team was so much fun and we all enjoyed our event. Who would think volunteering could be so much fun? I luckily have had the opportunity to work both at a site and now at the ReVive Centre and equally enjoyed both. Not only do we have the ability to learn something new but also give back to our Community."
Kathy & The Pinnacle Team
"Our team had an outstanding time and are already talking about next year! You have come so far with the ReVive center since last year. Thank you for letting us partner up with your team and organization."

BUY OUR CREATIONS
Selection varies by store and is on a first-come-first-serve basis. All items are one-of-a-kind and made by volunteers using recycled materials donated to our ReStores or donated by local partners like Sawmill Sid and Amberwood Doors.
How does the ReVive Centre support Habitat?
The ReVive Centre helps support the ReStore and Habitat in a unique way. As a green initiative, the centre helps us breathe new life into items donated to the ReStore. This allows us to be able to take more donations from our community and divert additional waste from landfills. It also provides additional opportunities for volunteers to build and create in a controlled environment. Not only do we upcycle and give new life to furniture and items we might otherwise have had to throw away, but we also use materials sourced locally, like raw edge hardwood, to create new and unique items. Using recycled lumber helps us capture carbon and reduce the carbon footprint.Read More
The Habitat for Humanity Halton Mississauga ReStore is a warehouse that accepts donations of overstocked, gently used, discontinued items and salvageable building materials donated from manufacturers, other stores, local contractors and the public. Items that are donated include new and gently used furniture, building materials, appliances, cabinetry, sinks, countertops, household and décor items, lighting and much more. The ReStore then sells those donated items to the public at a reduced cost, typically 30-70% percent less than the original retail value. The money raised from the sale of these items covers all of our administrative costs (water, electricity, etc.) and allows us to purchase land to build safe, decent and affordable homes for hard-working, low-income families in need of a place to live.
The Revive Centre is a great space for corporations or organizations to team build and create new items for us to sell in the stores. The monetary donation required for teams to participate in that program then also goes to Habitat and helps us build more homes in our community.
