ReStore Volunteers

Did you know that our Habitat for Humanity ReStore diverts tons of building materials from landfills by reselling them at discount prices at our three locations in Portland, Vancouver and Beaverton? Or, that when you shop at the ReStore all the proceeds benefit three local Habitat affiliates?

The ReStore depends on volunteers to do a variety of jobs that keep the stores running smoothly. They need truck drivers, office assistants, customer service assistants, receiving assistants, stockers and cleaners.

Immediate ReStore Need:
We have plenty of opportunities at any of our three ReStore locations Monday through Saturday. Visit the ReStore website to register at pdxrestore.org or contact Janell Watt at janell@pdxrestore.org or 503.517.0720
