What are some typical duties during a ReStore volunteer shift?

A volunteer shift at ReStore might include receiving donations, sorting materials (hardware, tile, tools, etc.), building displays, and basic maintenance duties such as sweeping, cleaning, and organizing our aisles. Every day is a little different and everything you do to help is important, so we appreciate your flexibility as a volunteer! There are many ways in which community members can engage with ReStore. If you have a specific skill set that you feel could benefit our program, we’d love to hear from you!
