Habitat for Humanity

ReStores are open to the public and sell donated home improvement products at a fraction of retail prices. Plus, we keep usable materials out of landfills by recycling the materials into home building, remodeling, and creative art projects. We raise funds to help Habitat for Humanity build affordable homes in the Portland metropolitan area. Our ReStores are located in Portland, Beaverton, Gresham, and Vancouver.

Description: ReStore Treasure Hunters help staff sort through knick-knacks, novelties, and trinkets to find the hidden treasures within each donation. You never know what you will find! It could be a pair of binoculars, a vintage Scrabble board set, or the most beautiful stained-glass lamp you have ever seen. Don't miss out on finding these treasures for

Supervisor: All ReStore staff members are responsible for overseeing the work of ReStore volunteers. However, the ReStore supervisors will direct most daily tasks with the support of ReStore volunteers. The manager, assistant manager, and volunteer coordinator will be responsible for formal performance management.

Commitment: We ask that ReStore volunteers commit to at least two shifts per month (preferably once per week). This helps the training process move along and also allows volunteers to work more independently after training. After accumulating 16 volunteer hours, you will receive a 25% discount on any treasures you find and want to keep!

Physical Requirements**: ReStore assistants should be able to be on their feet for up to 4 hours. This will include walking, standing, potentially squatting or crouching, pushing carts, moving items on dollies, and more.
**We can accommodate light-duty tasks available upon request!
