Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity!: New Haven County ReStore




New Haven County ReStore
286 South Colony Road
United States


Do you want to support Habitat's work in a unique way? Volunteering at our ReStore is a great way to do it!

The Habitat Restore sells gently used and new items for the home including furniture, appliances, lighting, tools, cabinets, vanities, sinks, and much more. An ever changing selection of small decor and entertainment items are also available. All funds raised through sales at the ReStore go toward our organization's home building and restoration projects.

ReStore volunteers perform a variety of tasks including assisting customers, arranging floor displays, cleaning, and general store upkeep. It is helpful if volunteers are physically able to assist in lifting furniture but it is not mandatory. There are also opportunities for anyone who is interested in marketing, social media, and design. Volunteering at the ReStore is a great way to meet new people, see all of the treasures that arrive at the store multiple times per week, and help make home ownership a reality for the families who partner with Habitat.

ReStore hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Full and half day volunteer opportunities are available and students may sign up for a 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. shift during the week. We can accomodate 2-3 volunteers per shift so feel free to volunteer with a friend or family member, or help out on your own.
