Many Hands, One Goal at ReStore

Volunteers and supporting the mission of Twin Cities Habitat for HumanityAsk a regular volunteer at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStores what volunteering is like, and at some point, they’ll probably tell you it’s like being part of a big family with a common mission. Everyone has a different role to play—whether that’s organizing volunteers, pricing merchandise, or making sure everything looks good on the floor. And every seemingly little action adds up in a big way: in the last year, revenue from the ReStores helped sponsor the building of six Habitat homes.
