Why you might want to consider taking this opportunity: Habitat for Humanity builds safe, decent, affordable homes to provide families a hand up to break the cycle of poverty. Habitat for Humanity does this with the assistance of volunteers, donors of goods to our ReStores, individual donors, corporate partners, and the community. They embrace a culture of partnership and engagement establishing meaningful long-term connections with employees and the volunteers they rely on in a way that adds value to their lives.

Many benefits exist while volunteering at the ReStore including: relationship building, working for an organization with a significant environmental impact (ReStore diverts thousands of pounds of waste from the dump), directly impacting the work of Habitat for Humanity Wellington Dufferin Guelph (including the capacity to build more homes in our area), improved sales knowledge, usable volunteer hours for various community service requirements, in-store discount etc. We can also provide a letter confirming the hours that you contributed to Habitat for Humanity!
