Get Involved

The ReStore relies on the support of volunteers from the community to be a valuable resource for our customers. As new donations are coming in every day, volunteers accept donations; assess the usability of donations; clean, assemble, repair and price donations prior to stocking; stock donations on the sales floor; and keep the store inventory organized and clean.
