SPECIAL VOLUNTEER NOTICE:  At this time,  the Habitat for Humanity ReStores in Portland, Beaverton, Gresham and Vancouver have temporarily suspended all volunteer efforts. The health and safety of our dedicated volunteers is of the utmost importance to us and in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking our wonderful volunteers to stay home at this time. 

In the time being, we hope you'll shop and share ReStore's new online store. Browse deeply-discounted home improvement goods like furniture, lighting, appliances, paint, rugs, building materials, clothing and treasures. New items are added daily! SHOP HERE


You don’t have to swing a hammer to build a house!

Hey you.  Yeah, you!  You’re just the one that we’re looking for.  Our stores are bursting at the studs with fantastic donated materials and we are searching for folks just like you to help us make sense of it all.  No experience required.  We value teamwork, personality, and dedication to the cause of helping eliminate poverty housing one used hammer, door, washing machine, couch, or toilet at a time!  

Spend a few hours a week, a few a month, or make it your mission and join us more often.  We’re open 7 days a week and would love to have you on our team.

Task-specific training every day.

Our volunteers and staff work hard to receive and process donations, stock and merchandise product, provide excellent customer service to our amazing shoppers and donors, and help keep the store tidy and user friendly. 

Our staff at the ReStores (and Habitat for Humanity Store) are dedicated to providing top-notch training and support to our incredible crew of volunteers on a daily basis.  Come check us out at an orientation - held every Wednesday and Saturday at each ReStore location.  Submit an application to sign up!

NEW OPPORTUNITY: Clothing Department

 

We need volunteers to 'spark joy' in our clothing department! Flexible shifts are available for processing, organizing and merchandising our fresh and ever-growing clothing department. We recognized a need in the Gresham community for affordable clothing in addition to affordable building materials.  

Our goal is to meet these needs, keep clothing out of the landfill, all while raising more funds to build homes.  Giving YOU, the volunteer, one more way to contribute! Come on, you can do this!

NOTE: ALL SALVAGE SERVICE PROJECTS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED TEMPORARILY in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are diverting staff to ReStore and warehouse locations for the time being. 

SALVAGE SERVICE:

Did you know that we have a salvage program?  Our Salvage Service crew rocks our world!  The mighty team of three carefully removes kitchen cabinets, appliances, light fixtures, doors, windows, lumber, and more from homes undergoing remodels or demolition.  If you’re handy with a hammer, saw, crowbar and a dolly this might be the opportunity for you.  The Salvage crew could use a hand on big projects and would love to keep you in the loop. (Must be able to lift 50 lbs. and maneuver items safely. Background check required.)

(Watch the Salvage Service team remove a kitchen in less than a minute!)
 

DONATION PICKUP

Have you seen our trucks around town?  That’s our donation pickup crew spending their days on the road gathering fantastic donations for our stores.  These folks screen donation requests, coordinate logistics, pick up and deliver large or plentiful items to the stores.  This crew is looking for a few dedicated volunteers to lend a hand on a regular basis.  If you’ve ever wondered what the city looks like from the cab of a 16-26ft box truck then this is the gig for you!  

This opportunity starts at 8:30 am in NE Portland near the airport, so it’s especially important that you have access to reliable transportation.  The shift typically ends around 4:30 pm. This is a hard-working, professional, dedicated, and friendly crew.  Our donation pickup drivers are the face of our organization and are the only ones that make house calls.  Excellent customer service is key.  Experience working with this great crew yourself!  

This role requires the ability to lift  50lbs repeatedly in addition to the ability to safely maneuver items on a dolly, pallet jack, on a lift gate, or by lifting with a partner.  Teamwork is essential! 

(Volunteers interested in donation pickup should email volunteer@pdxrestore.org.)
