Who we are:
Habitat for Humanity is a well-known, World renowned Non-profit organization. Much of the work we do, whether at the ReStore or on the building of houses, is done by volunteers. We welcome volunteers of all skill levels who are interested in contributing their time and talents toward making a difference in the lives of families in need!
Habitat for Humanity of Utah County provides opportunities for individuals and organizations to take action in the fight against substandard housing. Working together to help people become successful homeowners creates stability in the community.
What we do:
The ReStore is a vital contributor to the Habitat for Humanity cause. Our mission is to raise money for the building of houses by obtaining donations in the form of building supplies, furniture, and home décor items from the community, and selling these items to others in the community who need them.
Volunteering at the ReStore means volunteering in a stimulating, often educational (especially if you don’t know much about building), fun environment.
As a volunteer, your duties can/will include general maintenance of the store(s), receiving donations- this often includes heavy lifting, organization of building supplies, cleaning of donations, putting together donated items, and helping customers.
How we can help you:
Just as we help people attain their dreams of getting into a home, we are committed to helping you achieve your dreams of attending the professional school of your choice. We will provide you will the volunteer opportunity needed for your applications, and, if desired, a letter of recommendation. While letters of recommendation are great, the joy you feel while helping these families in need is a reward by itself. Even though your dreams of attending professional school may change, the time you spend here will help your community. By helping here, you can make a difference. You will make a difference and to you. We are grateful for all the help we receive from our communities, and would love for you to be a part of it.
