About

The Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County ReStores sell donated materials to raise money in support of Habitat Oakland County’s Home Ownership Program. Habitat Oakland County relies on volunteers to power our ReStores in Pontiac and Farmington Hills. By doing jobs that paid staff normally do, you allow the ReStores to give even more of the proceeds to Habitat Oakland County, helping local families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

Join our ReStore staff for a morning or afternoon of organizing and moving merchandise, customer service, helping our drivers and more. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to work and be part of Habitat Oakland County’s mission.
