Volunteer at the Habitat ReStore
Volunteering at the Habitat ReStore is a great way to support the Habitat mission and give back to the community. Our Habitat Restore is growing and we need volunteers every bit as much as we need our donors and shoppers. We strive to keep operating costs as low as possible to maximize the amount of money that goes directly to benefit the community, and volunteers are one of the ways to achieve this. Volunteers also help ensure the Habitat ReStore is a great experience for donors and shoppers.
