National Volunteer Week

volunteer week

It’s National Volunteer Week, and we’re filled to the brim with appreciation as we think about all the wonderful volunteers who volunteer their time here at the ReStores. National Volunteer Week, which falls April 12-April 18, is dedicated to recognizing the exceptional individuals who choose to intentionally engage in their communities to be a part of a movement bigger than themselves. We have some awesome volunteers who embody this desire, and regularly give their time to further the Habitat mission. To celebrate our wonderful volunteers, we would like to honor all their hard work and dedication by spotlighting some of these individuals.

jordan and jarrett

Jarrett and Jordan have been regular volunteers for over two years now. They come in early every Tuesday morning to help us prepare for the busy week by assisting us in moving merchandise from the receiving end out onto the floor. They both have amazing work ethics, and always carry around a smile and can do attitude! When they were asked what their favorite part about volunteering at the ReStore is, they said ““We love coming in every week to help move and organize things. They play music in the work room, and the staff make it fun to volunteer. We love working with all the new friends we’ve made over the years!”

Ken is a regular volunteer at the Escondido ReStore. He comes in every week and we truly appreciate all his hard work and time! He has been with us since the Escondido ReStore opened. Ken enjoys volunteering at Habitat for Humanity because he believes in the Habitat for Humanity Mission.

“Providing affordable homes for families is the best thing that we can do for our society, for our neighborhood, and for our country.”

Ken also says he enjoys all the activity that happens at the ReStore, “all the donations that come in every day is great to see and I love working with my hands!”

Sherri is a regular ReStore office volunteer. She helps us with data entry and she also helps us on the sales floor. We truly appreciate all her help!

“The reason I volunteer here is because of what ‘Habitat’ stands for. I love selling to customers – I did this for all my life. It is fun to walk around with customers to help them find all the items they need to furnish their house to make it their home.”


george 2

George volunteers every Thursday and Friday at the Escondido ReStore. He is a tremendous help and we appreciate all that he has done here! He has built us racks for the store, he tests appliances, and he helps sort all the donations. “I enjoy working with the Habitat ReStore staff and talking to all the customers. My day is filled with a worthy cause at the Habitat ReStore!”

Thank you again to all of our wonderful volunteers, we really wouldn’t be able to operate without your help! You guys are the dream! For more information about volunteering, please visit our website here:
