ReStore Retail & Donation Center
Sort, organize, and price items in Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore Retail & Donation Center. Items are donated to the store and the proceeds are applied to the construction of Habitat homes. The ReStore offers volunteer opportunities Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:30am – 12:30pm and 12:30pm – 4:30pm; Thursday and Friday 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 6pm; and Saturday 10am – 2pm. Volunteers may select the shift during which they wish to volunteer.
A Habitat supervisor will always be on hand to give volunteers instructions on the project of the day.
All Volunteers are required to bring a signed Release and Waiver of Liability on their first volunteer day.
Volunteers must be at least 14 years old. If volunteers are younger than 18 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must sign the form. Volunteers who are 14 and 15 years old must have a registered volunteer at least 18 years of age with them. No heavy lifting is permitted.
The ReStore does not allow shopping while volunteering. Volunteers may shop after their volunteer shift is over or during their lunch break. Volunteers may not set items aside during their volunteer shift to purchase later. Nothing may be purchased from the back sorting room or the loading dock. Under no circumstances are items to be removed from the store without being paid for.
We ask that volunteers refrain from using cell phones while volunteering. Volunteers may use cell phones during the ½ hour lunch break or the 2 ten minute breaks.
If volunteers are taking a break, we ask that they step outside on the dock or use the break room. Volunteers may not sit on furniture that is for sale.
