Just like Habitat for Humanity build and repair sites, our Twin Cities ReStores need amazing volunteers each and every day to keep the stores running smoothly and our customers happy!

2017 Highlights from Twin Cities ReStores

Each year, our staff partners with 3,000 volunteers to receive donations, price inventory, stock our shelves, assist customer and generate revenue to help build Habitat homes. With the opening of our second location in Minneapolis this past fall, we're going to need even more help from our local community!

How can you get involved?

Join us as a one-day volunteer.

Tasks include assisting customers, loading and unloading merchandise and donations, taking on special projects as assigned, and helping to maintain a clean and attractive store, and you can sign up for as little as 3-4 hours, up to a full day!

Regular volunteers commit to a regular schedule ranging from one day a month to multiple days a week!

"When I ring up a big-ticket item, I get this thrill because I know money from every sale goes towards a family buying a home," said Hope, a regular cashier volunteer.

And it's not just Habitat's partner families that benefit from the work of ReStore volunteers. ReStore staff, donors, and shoppers rely on the extra sets of helping hands to make the ReStore donation and shopping experiences as smooth and as efficient as possible.

“Everyone here really respects the volunteer,” said Jim, a regular ReStore volunteer. “They consider you part of the team."
