Volunteer at the ReStore

In order to protect our communities from COVID-19, Habitat LA work sites and ReStores will be closed to volunteers. This policy will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.


What Exactly is the ReStore?

The Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) ReStores are nonprofit, home-improvement thrift stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. All proceeds from the ReStore sales are used toward Habitat for Humanity's mission to end substandard housing worldwide. 

How Can Volunteers Help?

ReStore Volunteers are needed every day! Help us sort through unique donated items from contractors, companies, movie & television studios and individuals. We also need help with furniture assembly, restocking shelves, maintain a clean floor inventory, and providing outstanding customer service.  

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age due to restrictions at this time.

How to Sign Up

We’re asking volunteers to commit at least 8 hours a week before they sign up for a shift. We are not accepting walk-in volunteers currently due to COVID-19 protocol.

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator to find out how to sign up for a shift at one of our three Habitat LA ReStore locations at (310)-991-5805 or via email.

Available Shifts

  • Sunday – Saturday: 9:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m.
    We have currently limited slots to two volunteers per shift.

*You are also welcomed to volunteer for a full day. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator to learn more about signing up for a shift!

Three ReStore Locations Available

Can I do school, work, benefits or court-ordered community service at the ReStore?

 A great way to knock out those community service or major requirement hours is by volunteering in our ReStores. We also offer recommendation letters for students that volunteer in our ReStores 10 times OR up to 40 hours. Feel free to bring a friend along! 

To learn more about yourself or team volunteering in our ReStore, view the FAQ section. All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. Please fill out and bring your Volunteer Form packet with you when you come and volunteer with us.
