The Habitat for Humanity ReStore sells new and used overstocked and discontinued building and home improvement materials donated by manufacturers, stores, contractors, businesses, and individuals. These donated items are sold to the public. All profits from the Habitat ReStore help build and repair Habitat for Humanity homes in partnership with our community.

Volunteer Opportunities

While every day brings new opportunities and tasks to be done at the Habitat ReStore, there are recurring chores and tasks for volunteers. These include:

  • Assist customers and donors
  • Schedule pick ups
  • Organize and price stock
  • Unload trucks and vehicles
  • Set up and clean displays
  • Store and ground maintenance

We are always looking for volunteers who would like to volunteer on a regular basis at the ReStore. Those individuals or small groups can work with ReStore staff to define specific, recurring volunteer job descriptions and schedules.
