Habitat For Humanity Of Greater Chattanooga Calling For Volunteers At ReStore Locations

Thursday, November 19, 2020
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area is calling on volunteers to serve at their ReStore locations this holiday season.

The Chattanooga ReStore at 1201 East Main St. and the Ooltewah ReStore at 9408 Apison Pike are open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

While both locations are looking for individual volunteers who are over the age of 18 to assist with organizing inventory, stocking shelves and cleaning and sanitizing, the Ooltewah location is in most need.
While Habitat has previously enjoyed the help of groups of volunteers, they are discouraging groups this season due to the risk of COVID-19.

“Volunteers are critical to both the success of our home builds and our ReStores,” said Hannah Muller, Habitat’s volunteer engagement manager. “While the ongoing pandemic has limited the number of people we can have on site at a time, we are still able to safely accommodate individual volunteers. We are incredibly grateful for anyone who feels called to assist us this holiday season.”
 
The ReStore locations serve as home improvement stores and donation centers. Habitat ReStores sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home goods, building materials and more.

The ReStores are also always accepting tax-deductible donations of household goods, furniture, appliances and building materials. All proceeds from reselling donations goes to rehabbing and repairing homes in partnership with low-income homeowners in the community.
