(If you are looking for ways to volunteer on a Habitat build site, please click here for more information.)

Volunteering at the ReStore is a fun way to make a difference in your community without swinging a hammer or getting your boots muddy. Not only do ReStore volunteers help Habitat for Humanity build affordable homes in Lexington, but they also keep our community clean and green by diverting more than 6,000 pounds of reusable material out of the waste stream every day! New ReStore volunteers must schedule an orientation prior to their first shift.




Volunteer opportunities are available from 9:30am to 7:30pm Monday through Saturday. Please consider making a commitment of at least (2) four hour shifts per month. ReStore volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer without a parent or guardian or 14-15 years old with the accompaniment of a parent or guardian. Small group opportunities are also available.
