Volunteer Opportunities at ReStore Elgin
You don’t have to pound nails to be a part of providing safe, affordable, decent housing for partner families. Habitat ReStore in Elgin sells new and used building materials directing the proceeds to fund the building of houses. So, your volunteering at ReStore has a direct impact on supporting Habitat for Humanity Northern Fox Valley.
All merchandise is donated
We sell both new and used building materials that have been donated by homeowners, retailers, manufacturers and distribution centers.
At the ReStore we strive to meet three goals: 1) Keep items from going to landfills by recycling the products to the next generation of customer that have a need for it; 2) Provide values to our customers by pricing items 50% to 75% off the listed retail pricing; 3) Provide funds for building homes to eliminate sub-standard houses.
At ReStore there are a variety volunteer opportunities with our teams such as: proactive procurement, donation pick up, receiving/warehousing, merchandise processing and sales/cashiering. You can also volunteer on our Special Ops team that plans for ReStore participation in home shows and local festivals.
