Whether you've got tons of work experience or you're trying to build some, we've got a place for you at The ReStore.
LOTS TO DO AT THE RESTORE
Our volunteers have a lot of roles to fill-- from providing helpful customer service to creating DIY projects and displays, to painting store signs and organizing stock. We'll assess your natural abilities to find a place where you'll fit in and a role that interests you.
If you already have experience working at a store--or working with a team-- we'll find you a spot where your skills are most needed. We love that you've been around the block a few times. Sharing your skills will help inspire new ideas and helps our stores run smoothly. We know what you've learned will help us in our mission to sell donated reusable building materials, appliances and furniture to raise money for Habitat for Humanity.

The first step is to complete our online volunteer application, then select a time to attend an orientation. They're held weekly at each of our locations.

HERE'S WHERE YOU SIGN UP
All of our ReStores have volunteer opportunities in customer service, donation receiving and as a friendly ReStore associate. Get the ball rolling: Sign up to volunteer at the store location near you:
If you like getting your hands dirty, working with our Salvage Service team might be a great spot for you. Here you would be carefully removing kitchen cabinets, appliances, light fixtures, windows, doors - well, you name it! Deconstruction is where it's at these days, and if you like wielding a hammer and are all about reuse, this is it!
As a donation pickup volunteer you'll be assisting our ReStore staff in loading and unloading donations. Here you are on the front line, getting a first glimpse at what will soon be on our sales floor. It's pretty exciting, and if you've got some Jenga skills, all the better for getting items into the truck and out to stores without damage. You've got that covered though, right?
OUTREACH: New positions!
If you love meeting new people and talking about the wonders of The ReStore, then you'll love working with Outreach. Outreach ambassadors help man booths at local events like home and garden shows, fix-it fairs, festivals and farmers markets.Other Outreach opportunities include updating our donor database and reaching out to the business community.
We’re also building a new volunteer Business Outreach Team to work with our ReStore Outreach staff. This new team will focus on contacting retail businesses, manufacturers, distributors, logistical companies and others to solicit material donations for our three Portland Metro ReStores. As a networking volunteer, you’ll be part of a vibrant and successful team with fun bi-monthly strategy meetings. Lead lists, geographic research and donor base data will be provided along with leadership and training from our Outreach Team staff. The time commitment is flexible and can be built around your availability. You’ll meet other passionate and excited people while helping us expand the business donor base in our service area. This team’s impact will be instrumental in the continued growth of our stores and will help empower our affiliates to partner with even more worthy families in our communities.
