Habitat Greater Ottawa ReStores - Volunteering at the ReStore

Information for New Volunteers:

We have many volunteer roles to offer at our ReStores such as: helping in the warehouse with receiving, sorting, recycling, prepping and repairing donations. We also have volunteer roles in the retail space assisting with greeting, cashier support, merchandising, light upkeep and heavy upkeep. We will review these options with you at your Orientation. 

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.
