Henrietta ReStore Volunteering

About This Campaign

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Each donated item keeps quality and usable items out of the landfill, and each item sold is a great deal for our customers that generates money to further our mission.

Habitat ReStore Volunteering:

Be flexible and prepared to work. We ask volunteers to be flexible and prepared for a good day's work, no matter the task. This may include assisting with: customer service, donation pick-ups, unloading and cleaning donations, organizing store shelves and displays, retail housekeeping and cleaning (including storefront and parking lot), and more. Ability to lift 20+ pounds is very helpful for most ReStore volunteering, but there are opportunities that do not require lifting.

Age restriction: 14-17 year-old volunteers can work at Habitat ReStore only after submitting a parental permission form.

Schedule: Volunteer shifts at ReStore are generally available Monday through Saturday. Each day has a three hour morning shift, and a three hour afternoon shift; and a volunteer can sign-up for both shifts if they prefer. Volunteers must be available for the entire shift. Saturdays are the most requested day, so if you can make it on a weekday, please choose that first.

Attire: ReStore volunteering includes a warehouse, and you should be prepared to get a little dirty. You may also be going between indoors and outdoors, so dress for the weather. Closed-toe shoes are required. No sandals or flip-flops, you will be sent home.

Weather: We work year-round as long as conditions are safe. For issues of inclement weather, Habitat ReStore volunteering will close when the Rochester City School District closes.
