Volunteer

We think our volunteers are superheros, but you don’t have
to be Superman or Wonder Woman to make an impact.  


Fact is that our volunteers range in age from 18 to 85 and do everything from customer service in the store to sorting and pricing donations in the warehouse.  In 2010, our volunteers helped us process and sell over 2 million pounds of donated materials.  

Chuck and Wendell are ReStore Superheros.  Call 805-1411 to find out how YOU can be a Superhero!Please join us in our efforts to improve our community.  We need Volunteers to work in our stores as Customer Service Volunteers, and in our donation centers as Donor Ambassadors.

For more information call our Volunteer Coordinator at 502.805.1411.

Volunteer Opportunities

Dylan uses his Superhero strength to help a customer with a very importat purchase.Donation Center:
Donors have been very kind to us and we need a lot of help processing and moving donated materials into the store.  No special skills required.

Customer Service:
Helping customers with their purchases including measuring items, carrying items, and generally making customers feel welcome. Knowledge of building materials, furniture, or landscaping and gardening is helpful, but not required.
 
Marketing:  
One of the most important things volunteers can help with is spreading the word throughout the community.  Even if you don’t want to volunteer at ReStore, please help us to spread the word.
