How Do ReStore Shifts Work?

We are no longer accepting walk-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.

Breaks

  • For a 4-hour to 6 hour 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.
