In 2019, our volunteers contributed nearly 50,000 hours to help further our mission – that's over five and a half years of volunteering!  


Over the past few months, we had to temporarily halt our volunteer programs to keep our community safe during the initial uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic. That said, we are beyond excited to now welcome all our volunteers back to the build site and ReStore, with enhanced safety measures and procedures.


Before registering to volunteer, check out our new virtual volunteer orientation series to learn all the information you need to know to get started.


We can’t wait to see you!
