When you volunteer at the ReStore, your generous commitment of time helps fund homes for hard-working families and positively impacts the environment through the ReStore's reuse policy.

ReStore volunteers must be at least 16 years old, wear closed-toe shoes, and come dressed and ready to work in an indoor retail/warehouse environment. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parental waiver completed in order to volunteer.

ReStore Volunteer Opportunities:

Group and individual volunteers: Habitat welcomes group and individual volunteers who want to work in support of affordable homeownership in our community. Working in the ReStore with your organization is a great team building experience, promotes camaraderie, and has many positive benefits. Volunteers typically help unload donated items, organize and clean donations, stock, price, and merchandise items on the sales floor, maintain the cleanliness and organization of the store, and assist customers with carry-outs after purchase.

Sales floor volunteer: Have a knack for knick-knacks? Help our customers find their next treasure as a Sales Floor Volunteer. Using your decorating skills to showcase our items and keep a tidy store will help fund our mission and build more homes!

Donations dock volunteer: This position will include accepting donations directly from drop-off donors with an emphasis on what we accept and do not accept and assisting customers with loading items.

Deconstruct volunteer: The Deconstruct team travels in and around Nashville to remove kitchens, bathrooms, windows, doors, and more to be sold at the ReStore to support affordable homeownership. Volunteer shifts are TBD/or by appointment, and do require lifting and exposure to weather outside. Contact Jim Neal at deconstruction@habitatnashville.org.

If you are interested in learning more about any position or have any questions, please email our ReStore volunteer coordinator, at restorevolunteer@habitatnashville.org. On the date that you volunteer, you will need to complete this Volunteer Release Form to bring in with you. Completed forms may also be emailed to restorevolunteer@habitatnashville.org prior to your volunteer date.

Parking at the ReStore: Volunteers, we ask that you save the closest parking spots for customers carrying purchased items and park further away from the building. Thank you for being considerate!
