Volunteering FAQs

 

Q: What should I wear to volunteer at the ReStore?

A: Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and closed toe/heel shoes. Athletic shoes or boots are best - no ballet slippers, crocs, heels, clogs, sandals, etc.

Q: I'll be there all day, do you provide lunch?

A: The ReStore does not provide lunch, but there are several lunch options nearby. There is a break room with a refrigerator and a microwave if you would like to pack a lunch.

Q: I'm supposed to start at 9:30AM, but the store doesn't open until 10AM. How do I get in?

A: Knock on the front entrance and a ReStore staff member will let you in.

Q: I would love to get my family more involved. Can I bring my kids along with me?

A: For safety reasons, our ReStore volunteers must be at least 14 years of age.

Q: Can I bring a group along?

A: Certainly! We love to have groups volunteer at the ReStore. We can even schedule a special time for your group. Contact the store at (704) 786-4000 to arrange a time and please note that all volunteer groups must be scheduled in advance.

Q: What will I be doing during my time there?

A: It varies. Visit our Volunteer Opportunities page for more information.

Q: How does my time help Habitat?

A: Every task a volunteer does helps to reduce our overhead cost and allows us to direct even more of our proceeds to Habitat for Humanity of Cabarrus County.

Q: I have a special skill that I thin would be helpful to Habitat, but I don't see a category anywhere under the Volunteer Opportunities. How can I help using that skill?

A: Contact us at (704) 786-4000 to find out where you can help. We can use all types of skills, from plumbing, drywall installation and finishing, flooring installation, and electrical to artistic and everything in between.
