Lend a hand at ReStore

Lend a hand at ReStore

It’s been a busy time at ReStore! March was our most successful month EVER at both locations and more people are shopping for their DIY projects or donating their unwanted items. We need volunteers who can consistently help out, help run the store, take in donations and assist shoppers. We need YOU!

Tim and Chipper.

Here is what ReStore Volunteers Tim and Chipper have to say about why they volunteer:

"It's an opportunity to help others. I have an admiration of humanitarian efforts of Habitat for Humanity."

"I've volunteered on home building and wanted to try out ReStore."

Become a Regular Volunteer

A regular ReStore volunteer is someone who typically helps out 3-4 times a month with a variety of tasks. Tasks may include helping customers, accepting donations, and keeping the sales floor stocked. Some volunteers even price items and run the cash register.

For those who like to organize, there are always places in the store that could use straightening up too. ReStore is constantly receiving new items, so organizing the sales floor is a huge help!

Warren and Tim.

Here is what Warren and Tim have to say about volunteering at ReStore:

"It's fun and helps other people. It’s an opportunity to get out of the house."

"I get to interact with others and have fun."

Safety First

Volunteers help us all stay safe by following our COVID-19 safety guidelines and making sure customers do the same. We also need help with keeping an eye on how many people are in the store and making sure everyone is properly wearing a mask at all times. We all need to do our part in stopping the spread of Coronavirus!

BONUS discount!

ReStore Regular Volunteers get 20% OFF (excludes red tagged items) Twin Cities ReStore purchases! If you spot a unique piece of furniture or need tools or materials for a project at home, you won't be paying full price when you become a volunteer.
