If you would like to volunteer at the ReStore, just stop by our location at 300 Rice Industrial Parkway, Amherst and speak to one of our volutneer coordinators.
In order to provide the maximum amount of revenue for our building projects, the ReStore must run lean. ReStore volunteers make up the majority of our staffing. Volunteers assist in accepting donations, processing items for resale by cleaning, pricing, and stocking. Volunteers arrange inventory on the showroom floor and help keep our warehouse and showroom floors well organized and sparkling clean. Volunteers assist our shoppers by providing helpful customer service and support too.
Relying on volunteers to accomplish our work helps keep the cost of store operations down, helps to drive up profits which translates into more affordable housing. Keep in mind that 100% of these profits are donated to help build decent, affordable homes throughout Lorain County. Your volunteer efforts help to build up our community.
ReStore volunteers also help with deconstruction projects. Before a home is demolished, Habitat for Humanity is called upon to deconstruct any salvageable item (i.e. windows, doors, cabinets, counters, garage doors, exterior and interior doors, furnaces, etc.). Often times we are called to clean out a home after an estate sale, a church after a rummage sale, or when a family member is moving in or out of assisted living. Anytime items are no longer needed, the ReStore is there to help clear out the items and make them useful once again!
