Volunteer at the ReStore

Managing donations and customer purchases can be challenging. We work hard every day to keep our retail areas neat, clean and ready to sell. We love when volunteers help us manage donations, serve shoppers, and be a part of our year-round fundraising. Although volunteers at the ReStore aren’t actually swinging a hammer to build someone’s Habitat home, they are helping us raise money to support our builds. Spend all day with us or just a couple of hours, whatever your schedule allows. Below are some FAQ's about volunteering at the ReStore.
