Volunteer at the Habitat for Humanity Stores! Our volunteers have a lot of roles to fill– from providing helpful customer service to creating DIY projects and displays, to painting store signs and organizing stock. We’ll assess your natural abilities to find a place where you’ll fit in and a role that interests you.
If you already have experience working at a store–or working with a team– we’ll find you a spot where your skills are most needed. We know what you’ve learned will help us in our mission to raise money for Habitat for Humanity.
