Volunteering at the Habitat ReStore

It's that time of year where donations of furniture, tools, and construction materials of all shapes and kinds are picking up, and here at the ReStore we do our very best to get those unique items ready for the public! At the ReStore you can have an exciting opportunity to make our community a better place through the upcycling of used furniture items and household materials. Ever paint a room in your house, and had some cans leftover? Have you done a remodel, wanted your kitchen cabinets to go to a good home instead of the landfill? The ReStore is the perfect place for that. We are looking for a group of service-minded people to assist us with our ReColor paint program - recycling latex paint and creating new colors, as well as the Donation Center, where we tackle exciting projects and make donated items available for purchase. 
We accept used home goods, furniture items, tools, hardware, and more, and make those items available for sale to the public at a fraction of the cost. All of the proceeds from these sales go directly to support Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization that is "building strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter" in the Lehigh Valley. In fact, since its creation in 1989, HFHLV has placed over 120 families in good, affordable housing. Habitat for Humanity of the Lehigh Valley is a non-profit organization that works to build simple, decent homes for hardworking, disadvantaged families in our local community. They are an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), a global organization that has provided housing for more than 2 million people in communities in America and around the world. As one of 1,500 U.S. affiliates, Habitat Lehigh Valley embodies the mission and goals of HFHI at the local level. 
As a volunteer, you will be able to assist us in processing the new donations - often unique pieces - and it's a guarantee, no day is ever the same!
