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

Individual and group volunteers have been and will continue to be an integral part of Habitat achieving its mission here in New Castle County. During the early part of the Corona virus crisis, we suspended volunteer activities out of an abundance of caution.

At this time, we are looking at how we can safely accommodate prospective homeowners on site, so they can achieve their sweat equity hours, so they can successfully complete our homeownership program.

We are not accepting any other individual or group volunteers for the foreseeable future. We will continue to monitor information about the spread of the virus, and look forward to the time when we can get back to hosting more volunteers at 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.
