Volunteers Needed for Habitat Cape Cod ReStores

A great opportunity to put your talents to work and make a difference!

Yarmouth Port, November 5, 2018 – ReStore volunteers are needed every day! Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod ReStores are nonprofit home improvement 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, recycling the items and keeping them out of landfills. Funds raised from sales are dedicated to supporting Habitat’s program of building homes on Cape Cod to be purchased at an affordable price by local families with serious housing needs.

It takes someone who can look at a donated refrigerator or lamp and see instead the opportunity for affordable home ownership for a local family currently living in very challenging circumstances,”
