Habitat for Humanity calling for volunteers at Restore locations




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

The Chattanooga ReStore, 1201 E. Main St., and the Ooltewah ReStore, 9408 Apison Pike, are open Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

While both locations are looking for individual volunteers 18 or older to assist with organizing inventory, stocking shelves and cleaning and sanitizing, Habitat says the Ooltewah location has the greatest need.

Habitat is discouraging groups of volunteers this season due to the risk of COVID-19.

“Volunteers are critical to both the success of our home builds and our ReStores,” says 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’re still able to safely accommodate individual volunteers.”

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