Become a ReStore Volunteer

Interested in retail operations? Volunteer at one of our ReStores!

The ReStore is a retail store that stocks new and gently used home decorating and home improvement products at a deep discount. ReStore volunteers work alongside staff to create a friendly environment for our customers. We have four ReStores that are open seven days a week, giving the most flexible options for volunteers to donate their time.

Individual and group volunteers work alongside our staff, ReStore Core volunteers, and other volunteers in a variety of ways: greeting and assisting customers, accepting donations, sorting, preparing, and moving items on the sales floor, maintaining a clean and safe work environment, and much more. We would love to have you join us at any of the four ReStores!
