Habitat’s ReStore resale outlets sell reusable and surplus building materials to the public.
While every ReStore outlet is a little different, most focus on home improvement goods like furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances.
ReStore resale outlets accept donated goods which are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. The proceeds help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of Habitat homes within their communities. And ReStore’s prices help people save money on building and remodeling.
Promoting reuse and recycling
ReStore resale outlets provide an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable and/or surplus materials out of the waste stream while providing funding for Habitat’s community improvement work.
The Fairfield outlet is seeking numerous volunteers for everyday operations. The most needed position is for a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator. Other opportunities include a marketing coordinator, graphic artists, a photographer, individuals to hang posters, drivers to pick up donations, operations and customer assistants, donations processing coordinator and assistants, computer experts, an office manager, data entry assistants, cleaning assistants, artists, internet researchers, recycling coordinator, sustainability coordinator, workshop leaders and presenters, and more. Several opportunities can be done by individuals of all ages.
To apply for any of these positions, call Pre ReStore during store hours, Thursday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm, at 209-9450. Or contact Coralie Brook at 472-7148.
