ReStore Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Projects 2013

The Stillwater Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a resale store that financially supports the HfH building projects in Stillwater. Donated items are sold to the public at 50%- 90% off retail- but to operate the store we need volunteer help from the community.

The following is a list of on-going maintenance projects, special store improvements, operational help, and regular weekly times that assistance is needed. If you have a group that can come for a special project or if you are an individual who could dedicate once a week or once a month, we would love to have you join the Habitat Team. For further information, please contact the ReStore Manager.

Weekly: These projects require at least one 2-hour shift per week per category and can be performed anytime during store hours.
