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.


COVID-19 update

While corporate volunteer groups remain suspended due to COVID-19, we are currently seeking individuals who can commit to a minimum of 2 hours per week for at least one month – to volunteer in our ReStores. Our hope is to develop a core group of “regular” volunteers to assist in our ReStores located in Price’s Corner and Middletown.  Please contact Maritza Martinez at for more information.

Volunteers have been and will continue to be an integral part of Habitat achieving its mission here in New Castle County. Initially, all volunteer activities were suspended due to COVID-19. Since that time, we welcomed back some of our regular volunteers who offer 8 hours or more each month to Habitat NCC. We are also looking at how we can safely accommodate prospective homeowners on site, so they can achieve their sweat equity hours, and  successfully complete our homeownership program.

We look forward to the time when we can return to safely hosting volunteer groups  at both  our construction sites and ReStores.

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.

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 recommend 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, Maritza Martinez at or 302.652.0365 x110.
