Most people think a Habitat for Humanity volunteer is a person swinging a hammer on a construction site. While that type of volunteer is extremely important, there are many other types of volunteer positions available at Habitat for Humanity.
One place that abounds with volunteer opportunities is the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The ReStore is a home improvement store that sells new and gently used items. Proceeds from the ReStore help us provide affordable housing solutions in Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park. There’s a way for everyone to help, regardless of skills or experience!
Here are some examples of volunteer opportunities that are available at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore – Manassas and soon-to-open Woodbridge ReStore.
Repair boss. With a little attention, an older table or chest of drawers can look like new. Come give a little TLC to products that otherwise couldn’t make it onto the sales floor. Your effort will help us keep excess materials out of the landfill and help Habitat raise more funds for its construction programs.
Hardware and Tool specialist. Hardware and Tool Specialists help receive, sort, clean, price and stock donations of tools and hardware. No experience is required.
Group volunteers. Group volunteers are welcome to assist with construction, the Habitat ReStore, and various special projects… each year, student groups, businesses, faith and professional organizations participate as group volunteers with Habitat.
Pricing specialist. For those with an interest in tools, antiques, china, or glassware, there’s an opportunity for you to share your expertise and help us accurately price items that are resold in our ReStore. Fair and equitable pricing that supports our housing program is key to our ReStore program. Your expertise in any product that we sell in our ReStore is welcome.
Volunteers are welcome at the ReStore Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The Manassas ReStore is located at 10159 Hastings Drive, Manassas (the corner of Dumfries Road and Hastings Drive). The Woodbridge ReStore is at 14055 Noblewood Plaza (next to the BJs at the PW Parkway and Minnieville Road). Click on the Volunteer button at the top of the page to learn more!
Interspersed amongst all this valuable information about volunteering are products that are currently for sale at the Manassas ReStore! Donations are the lifeblood of the store and your help is needed to process them so they can be sold to the general public at 40% – 90% off retail prices and support our construction programs!
We hope you’ll join us as a volunteer, donor and/or shopper soon! Here are a few more items that were for sale in the ReStore this week:
