Volunteer with Habitat ReStore

ReStore is our open to public retail outlet that sells donated new and gently used home furnishings and building materials! The proceeds from all items sold at ReStore go to funding our home build missions. The MetroWest/Greater Worcester ReStore generates enough funds to build a home a year, while also keeping over 450 tons of usable materials out of landfills! Volunteer tasks at ReStore will consist of sort/assemble donations, moving items to the store floor, assisting in pricing items, assisting in creating displays, reorganizing/cleaning departments. Never a dull moment! All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Those under 18 will have to have our waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. Safety waivers will be provided by Habitat. All volunteers must wear closed toed shoes. Gravity is real, and we like all of volunteers to keep the toes they have. Also wear comfortable clothing that you won't mind getting dirty. The shift will start with a brief introduction and safety orientation.
