Volunteer - Come Join Us!

Volunteers serve a vital role in helping the ReStore achieve its mission.

With your help, we keep tons of usable materials out of the landfill each year and have raised over $3 million in sales to build Habitat for Humanity homes in our local community.

We achieve our mission only because individuals like you help us keep our store operations running smoothly. Volunteers give our stores a unique fun, easy going, creative work environment that encourages our customers to keep coming back. We are truly thankful for everyone who has helped us along the way.

We can find valuable work for nearly all skill levels. If you have the compassion and dedication to improve your community, we'd love to hear from you.

Please call (707) 578-7707 ext. 105 or email us at info@habitatsoco.org for more information on volunteering.

What to Expect

A volunteer shift at the ReStore may include: loading and unloading vehicles, receiving donations, sorting materials (like small hardware, tile, tools, etc.), building displays, and basic maintenance duties such as sweeping, cleaning and organizing our aisles. Occasionally, we'll have a special project that comes up like constructing a display, sorting bin tables or painting. Every day is a little different, and everything you do to help is important, so we appreciate your flexibility as a volunteer!
