   About the Position

Impact Statement
Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region's vision is to have a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to call home. But we cannot do this alone. We work in partnership, mobilizing volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting home ownership as a means to break the cycle of poverty.

Description
The ReStore sells new and gently used building supplies as well as unique home décor items. Volunteers provide customer service, prepare products for sale, help to receive and clean donated items, and assemble products and displays. Volunteers also help to maintain store cleanliness and organization.

Please note, all new ReStore volunteers must complete the online ReStore Orientation prior to their first volunteer shift. We then ask ReStore volunteers to commit to a minimum of 40 hours within a 3 month timeframe (approximately 4 shifts per month).
