ReStore

Rumble at the Warehouse

Volunteering

Help the Habitat for Humanity ReStore get ready to move into its new location at 10445 SE Cherry Blossom Dr. Portland, OR 97215.

We need volunteers to help us build merchandise shelves, paint, sweep, sort, carry, take things apart, put things back together… the list goes on! This is a great opportunity for individuals who like to keep busy.

New to the Habitat ReStore? We are a volunteer run thrift store that takes in donations of quality new and used building materials and home improvement supplies, and sells them to the public at a low cost. All the money raised from the sale of these items goes to Habitat for Humanity to help with home building efforts in this community. We are also diverting tons of usable materials from the land fill by providing a place to donate these unique items.

Must be 16 or over (under 18? you must have a waiver signed by a parent before working…forms available online http://www.pdxrestore.org ). No experience necessary but a little flexibility, a good sense of humor and willingness to try new things will ensure a great experience.

What to bring?

– Work gloves

– Closed toed shoes, and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty in

– Water and/or snack (we have a fridge and microwave available)

We need volunteers Monday through Saturday mornings from 9am-1pm, and afternoons 1pm-5pm. Or stay for the full day! Register as a volunteer online at www.pdxrestore.org or contact Janell at 503.517.0720 to get on our schedule. Bring your friends! Sign up an entire group!

We hope to see you at the ReStore!

Volunteers needed for deconstruction project – Utica, NY – The Observer-Dispatch, Utica, New York

MADISON COUNTY —

Madison County Habitat for Humanity, in cooperation with Syracuse Habitat for Humanity, will be deconstructing a house near Hamilton during the month of November. Deconstructing is the process of carefully taking apart a building to save as much of the material as possible.

Volunteers will be removing cabinets, plumbing fixtures, electrical outlets and switches, lights, doors, windows and more. How much can be saved is directly related to how many volunteers are on hand to help.

Madison County HfH will be using this material in several home repair projects through its “A Brush With Kindness” program. Although no special skills are required to help deconstruct, those with construction skills are needed.

There will be an informational meeting about this project at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at St Mary’s Church in Hamilton. For more information, call Rev. Greg Wright (315-374-9054) or email him at gwright@syracusehabitat.org.
