Volunteer At Restore, Habitat for Humanity

Opportunities For All

Habitat ReStores offer volunteer opportunities geared toward your interests and skills, from customer service to assembling new and used products. Volunteering at Habitat ReStore is a rewarding way to connect with people, build new skills and make a difference in your community. We offer you all the required and mandated safety training, a thorough orientation and supply you with the necessary safety equipment.

About the ReStore

The Salvage Team

As a part of our salvage team, you will be trained to skillfully remove a kitchen from a donor’s home. The donation will be taken to one of our Habitat ReStores where it will be sold to the public at a reasonable cost. All revenue generated helps fund Habitat’s mission. Join this dynamic group of volunteers and make a difference in your community.
