If you want to meet some great people, are interested in learning a new skill, or have a passion to help your community, the Habitat ReStores need you!

Our ReStores rank number 7 in the nation among over 700 stores, and generate more than $2,000,000 per year in proceeds. Proceeds from the ReStores directly support Habitat Wake’s mission to build safe, affordable housing in our community in partnership with hardworking, low-income families. The ReStores also offer discounted new and used materials to the public and help to keep more than 4,400 tons of usable materials out of the landfill each year!

Our ReStore success is made possible by volunteers like you. Together, we can do even more to build safe, affordable housing and support the environment.

 Volunteer opportunities are available in Raleigh, CaryApex, and Fuquay-Varina ReStores. Select a location that is convenient for you.
