As a fundraiser for Boise Valley Habitat for Humanity, ReStore relies on volunteers to help operate the business. ReStore staff provides training to all volunteers. No previous experience is needed and all volunteers are welcome. Minimum age requirements for ReStore volunteers are in place to ensure safety. Volunteers 17 years of age and older are welcome. Volunteers aged 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. There is no upper age limit for volunteers. Please inform us of any physical limitations you have so that we can assure you are safe and comfortable when you work with us.

VOLUNTEER

ReStore operates on VOLUNTEER POWER!  ReStore is very flexible about volunteer schedules; you may work as many or as few hours as you like, on a regular schedule or on an occasional basis. Volunteers should wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes and neat work clothes. We promise a positive and rewarding experience in an upbeat, positive, and friendly atmosphere. Each volunteer makes an important contribution to our efforts to eliminate poverty housing in Ada County, helping to meet Habitat for Humanity’s goal of assuring that all people have a simple, decent place to live.
