This is a great role for someone interested in, or with existing experience in, retail sales, customer service, or marketing - or just likes to be helpful! We are happy to sign off on any paperwork if you undertake this role for a class or if you want to do this for assigned community service. We are right on TriMet Line 57!

In this role you will come to the ReStore in Forest Grove for at least 2-3 hours (we are open 9 to 5, Monday through Saturday). You will wear a snazzy blue vest that identifies you as a ReStore volunteer, and you may:

  • help people find what they are looking for
  • ask our warehouse staff a question that someone has at the cashier desk
  • help customers take purchased items to the car.
  • organize our book and music album room.
  • tidy up or organize a shelf or section of the store (like the sporting goods section).
  • sweep the floor or clean a window
The Forest Grove ReStore is a critical fundraising tool for all of the housing programs of West Tuality Habitat for Humanity. Our vision is a community where everyone has a safe, decent, and affordable place to live. We do Critical Home Repairs for for our neighbors who are disabled, veterans, elderly, or have low or fixed-incomes. We also build affordable housing units alongside the future homeowners.
