Team ESL at Henrietta ReStore
A volunteering campaign for Flower City Habitat for Humanity.
About This Campaign
ESL volunteers will be helping with 14 pallets (about 400 doors) that need to be sorted and brought inside to get ready for sale so the proceeds can help us build more!
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.
Attire: ReStore volunteering includes a warehouse and some truck unloading so be prepared to get dirty. You may also be going between inside and outside, so dress for the weather. A solid colored top, sneakers or work boots are required. Jeans are recommended and any shorts must be knee length (denim or cargo are acceptable). No tank tops, sandals or flip flops, you will be sent home.
Weather: The pallets are all currently in a fenced storage area behind the ReStore, so if there is heavy rain we may have to reschedule.
