Thank you for your interest in volunteering at our ReStore!
The success of our entire operation depends on the service of the hundred + dedicated volunteers that support our ReStore.
We always have openings for volunteers. We welcome your participation and will happily work with you to determine timings that compliment your busy life.
By way introduction, similar to most affiliates across Canada, Habitat for Humanity Sarnia/Lambton operates a ReStore. The ReStore is our social retail enterprise. Our ReStore receives donations of new and gently used building materials, home furnishings, appliances and the like. These are sold at affordable prices to the general public and contribute to the building of homes locally.
The success of our ReStore locally has meant that Habitat for Humanity Sarnia/Lambton has been able to channel 100% of mortgage revenues, corporate, community and individual donations into our home build programs. Beyond its pivotal role in our sustainable business model, the ReStore plays an important role in environmental stewardship by actively re-cycling, re-purposing and diverting tons of materials from landfill annually.
Here are some ways that you can contribute:
Our volunteers answer the phones, collect donation information and assist with customer inquiries.
Under the direction of our ReStore management staff, our volunteers help with pricing all items for sale
Are you a DIY person? Our volunteers work in our workshop to ensure donated items are in good working order and ready for resale.
We have volunteer teams who help us with salvaging kitchens and building materials from residential and commercial locations
Our volunteers help to maintain and develop merchandise displays in-store
