Volunteers are the heart of our store.
We strive to provide a fun and meaningful experience for everyone working here, whether community member looking to give back, paid staff, workers in training, or community service volunteers. We are a diverse group of people here for a variety of reasons, but all working to further the ReStore Mission (and we have a lot of FUN doing it):
- Provides additional funding to support Bend Area Habitat for Humanity programs
- Makies home improvement accessible to those who might otherwise be unable to afford it, as well as those who prefer to improve their homes through reuse versus consumption of new goods
- Provides good stewardship of sustainable resources in the community
Youth and Groups
The ReStore welcomes volunteers 9 – 13 years of age to volunteer with an adult guardian/parent. Volunteers 14 and older are welcome on their own.
We are happy to accommodate your school, business, church or civic group with advance notice. Teams have more fun when we’re able to organize a special project. Please contact Brenda Jackson our Volunteer Coordinator for more information.
