ReStore

ReStoreLogoWe operate the Habitat ReStore on 15-501 in Durham – which sells gently used furniture, appliances, and household goods, as well as building and construction materials to the public –to raise money for our efforts. Proceeds from the ReStore are shared between our organization and Habitat’s Orange County affiliate. 

Volunteer opportunities at the ReStore include:

  • Donation processing (accepting, sorting, cleaning, testing, and pricing donations)
  • Customer service (greeting customers and managing the register)
  • Office administration (answering phones, entering data, and clerical tasks)
  • General maintenance

The ReStore is seeking volunteers who can commit to at least two shifts per month.  Shifts are generally either from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  One-time, short-term and group volunteers are also welcome.

To volunteer at the ReStore, call (919) 403-8668, ext. 103 or volunteer@restoredurhamorange.org.
