ReStore Volunteer

Sporting a small, yet resilient staff, our store could not operate without the help of our volunteers.  Our staff makes up less than 20% of the manpower needed to be a success.  Volunteering is a great way to spend some time and you can make a significant difference in the lives of others as the ReStore allows virtually all donated dollars to go directly to the cost of building homes.

The ReStore also assures that over 460 tons of materials never make it to a landfill each year.  Now that’s what we call Going Green!

Community Garden Volunteers

The Give Back Garden needs YOUR help in supplying fresh, locally grown food to families in need.  All of the produce we grow compliments the efforts of local food pantries to make fresh fruits and vegetables accessible to the community.  Help is needed with everything: weeding, watering, planting, harvesting, as well as with special projects (such as getting our fence painted).  No experience necessary.  Individuals, groups, and most ages welcome.  Please email givebackgarden@c-uphd.org if you are interested in volunteering!
