Volunteer at the New Castle County ReStores

Our ReStore volunteers are a crucial part of day-to-day operations - helping customers, while making an impact.

Your time builds sustainability.

Volunteering at the ReStore

ReStore volunteers keep our two resale stores stocked and running smoothly. A great option for creative, customer service oriented volunteers who prefer to work inside. If interested in bringing out a small group to our ReStore, please reach the volunteer coordinator, Eric Pichalski, directly at 302-652-0365 ext. 107, or volunteer@habitatncc.org

What can you expect when volunteering at the ReStore?

At our Habitat Restores, we look to engage you the volunteer with a variety of opportunities, including refurbishing of donations, creating decorative displays, organizing the donation dock and sales floor, and interacting with customers. All efforts are led by a fantastic team of ReStore staff and other fellow volunteers!

Habitat ReStore community volunteers typically:

– Assist donors w/ drop-off donations and receipts
– Sort boxes of donations
– Move small, priced items to the sales floor
– Ensure all items on sales floor have price tags
– Stock paint supply displays
– Assist customers and answer questions
– Light housekeeping

frequently asked questions


Do I have to lift heavy objects?

While it is not required that our volunteers be able to lift heavy objects, those who are able and willing to lift heavier items are always welcome! All volunteers that are willing to life objects are advised to bring gloves.


What should I wear?

We recommend that all volunteers dress in comfortable attire for standing and walking around the Habitat ReStore site. For safety reasons, we require wearing closed-toed shoes. The ReStore is equipped with heating and air conditioning, but it may get cold in the winter near the front door and receiving area, so dressing appropriately for the weather is recommended.


I have additional questions or need special accommodations.

We’re here to help! Please reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator Eric Pichalski at volunteer@habitatncc.org or 302.652.0365 x107.
