Habitat for Humanity's ReStore is searching for volunteers! The ReStore is a home-improvement store that sells donated building supplies. The benefits from the store are 3-fold: First, the profits from the store cover the administrative costs of Habitat for Humanity- MidOhio. Second, the ReStore recycles approximately 1,600 tons of waste each year. Finally, the ReStore benefits the community by providing new and used materials at a reasonable price.
- Store Workers: Assist customers, stock shelves, etc. - Pickup Helpers: Go out with our driver to pick up donations and bring them back to the store. - Deconstruction Workers: Assist in removing usable materials from buildings that will soon be torn down.
