Build- Orleans, Jeanne d'Arc Blvd

Our current build in Orleans, Leacross Landing, is our largest development to date with plans to build 16-townhouse units. We completed Phase I of the build and our first four townhouses in July 2018. Phase II of the build broke ground in June 2018 and we are working on finishing another 4 townhouses. Phase III will begin in the spring/summer 2019, where we'll be constructing the final 8 homes in this development.

We will have new opportunities to volunteer once we begin Phase III of Leacross Landing in the spring/summer 2019. To sign up, fill out our online volunteer application and in doing so, you will create your own volunteer account with a username and password. Scheduling is done online via your volunteer account and shifts fill up on a first-come, first-served basis. You will receive an email notification once new shifts become available. When we have shift openings to offer, they typically fall on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, 8:00 am-3:30 pm.

A few things to keep in mind about volunteering at the ReStore:

  • Our ReStore Orientation is mandatory for new volunteers and must be completed before signing up for your first shift. We schedule an Orientation every month. Once you have signed up to become a volunteer, you will be added to our email list and you will receive an invite to our next Orientation session. 
  • All volunteers must be a minimum of 16 years of age. Individuals who are 16-17 years of age require a waiver signed by a parent and/or guardian.
  • We ask for a regular commitment of a 4 hour shift, every week or every second week. 
  • Volunteers are required to provide and wear their own steel toe boots/shoes while volunteering in the ReStore.
