Cleaning Crew Love making things look their best? We’re always looking for folks who will do a thorough, professional job of keeping our store clean. Sweep, mop, dust – you’ll be the one that makes us all look good. Click here for details.

Cashier  Be the smiling face that our customers and donors remember! Answer the phone, explain Store policies and ring up purchases!

Donations Processing Specialist Do you know the difference between a Lock Washer and a Wing Nut? Or between a Demilune and a Chaise? Would you like to learn? If so, we'd love to have you help us process our donated items. This is a fun opportunity to be one of the first people to see everything our wonderful community shares with Habitat!

Here at the Store, we get lots of unassembled furniture, and are always looking for folks to help us put it together.

Even if you’re not very experienced, we have several regular volunteers that will be happy to work with you. Click here for details.

Heavy Lifter Who needs a gym!? Help customers bring large donations in, or load purchases into their vehicles. You may even get to ride in the truck with Larry!
