How Do ReStore Shifts Work?

We are no longer accepting first time drop-ins.

Volunteer Policies

Thank you for your interest! We do have a few policies for you to be aware of as you sign up for shifts.

  • Minors (ages 16-17) can volunteer in the ReStore unaccompanied, but must still bring a waiver signed by a parent/guardian.

  • Minors (ages 14-15) need to be accompanied by an adult (parent, guardian, teacher, or sibling over age 18) when volunteering, and must bring a waiver signed by a parent/guardian.

  • Community service volunteers must receive approval before signing up for shifts. Request approval for court-ordered community service.

  • All first-time (or returning volunteers after a long absence) are required to sign-up for an orientation. Sign up for an orientation.

Signing Up

If you are a first-time volunteer:  

  1. Click to register or sign up for a time slot here.

  3. Fill out the volunteer profile. Starred items are required. 

  4. Check the waiver box at the bottom. 

  5. Select a time slot if you have not already. 

  6. You'll receive a registration request submission notice and a follow-up email. 

  7. Please sign-up for a volunteer orientation available throughout the month. (If you require a special time, please contact Hannah Williams, ReStore Volunteer Coordinator at (303) 776-3334 x203 or hwilliams@stvrainhabitat.org. to make arrangements). 

  8. Minors need to bring their waiver signed by a parent/guardian at the beginning of their first shift. A link to download will be emailed to you in your confirmation email.

If you are a returning volunteer:

  1. Use your username and password you created on your first log-in here

  2. Select a time slot you wish to volunteer for on an available date. 

  3. If you do not see an available time slot you'd prefer or would like to volunteer for a different amount of hours, please contact us and let us know what times you'd like and we'll work with you.  

If you are completing court-ordered community service hours: 

If you are a first-time court-ordered community service volunteer, you need to call ahead. Contact Hannah Williams, ReStore Volunteer Coordinator, for approval at (303) 776-3334 x203 or hwilliams@stvrainhabitat.orgClick here to read additional requirements for community service volunteers.

Signing In and Out on Site

Click through the following slides to learn about the new and updated process.

Steps to Follow:

  1. Check in with customer service

  2. Sign in at the computer console.

    • If you are pre-registered, select your registered shift.

    • If you are not pre-registered but you are pre-approved, select General ReStore Time Clock for signing in and out.

  3. Community Service Volunteers are required to have a supervisor signature before leaving same day! We are not responsible for your paperwork if you forgot to obtain a signature same-day.

  4. To sign out, you’ll follow a similar procedure.

Not pre-registered is not the same as pre-approved. A pre-approved volunteer has completed the online profile, waiver, and an orientation, (and if a community service volunteer, our ReStore Volunteer Coordinator has a copy of your current photo ID and current court ordered paperwork on file). If you are not either, you will not be allowed to sign-in.

Breaks

  • For a 4hr to 5:59 shift, you will receive a 15 minute break. You do not need to sign out.

  • For a 6 hour+ shift, you receive a 30 minute lunch. You do need to sign out. Please factor your lunch into your shifts.

I’m Signed In. Now What?

  • If you are a first-time volunteer, you will need to have completed an orientation on site within 2 weeks of your start date.

  • Check in with customer service to find out where you will be assigned and/or needed for the day. If you have a preference, please let us know.

  • Pick up a volunteer vest in the back break room. All volunteers are required to wear a vest on site.

  • Leave your personal belongings in your vehicle or place in the lockers in the break room. We do not provide locks. Bring your own if you’d like.

  • Check in with area supervisor once you’ve been assigned.

  • Have fun! :)

What if I can't make a shift? 

We rely on volunteers to help run the ReStore, but we understand things happen. If you cannot make your shift for any reason, we encourage you to please contact the ReStore as soon as possible (303) 776-3334 or you may cancel your shift in the online system.
