Join Columbus Gives Back as we make a trip to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Westerville. This is an indoor opportunity, where your valuable time will be used to help sort, organize, and display building materials, furniture, and household fixtures donated to ReStore. These items are then sold to the public – proceeds from the sales help offset administrative expenses for Habitat for Humanity.
There will be ample parking in a big lot in front of the store. When you arrive, head on in to the front desk. We’ll get nametags, complete volunteer waivers, and learn about the Restore’s operations. Come dressed in comfortable work clothes and close toed shoes as we volunteer for a few hours and then enjoy lunch together afterwards.
When: Saturday, August 8th from 10 AM – 12:00 PM
Where: Habitat for Humanity ReStore, 3140 Westerville Rd. Columbus, OH 43224
Event Leaders: Evan@columbusgivesback.org
COVID-19 Precautions: All Columbus Gives Back volunteers are required to wear face masks and observe social distancing as appropriate to complete volunteer tasks. Volunteers who are sick, especially with fever or the growing number of Covid-19 symptoms, should stay home. We highly recommend that our volunteers wash their hands, use hand sanitizer at the beginning and end of the event, and/or wear gloves. We will follow whatever safety policy our nonprofit partners have in addition to the safety precautions listed above. Any volunteers determined to neglect these precautions and put other volunteers or the people we serve at risk will be dismissed from the event.
Additionally, if you feel ill, please stay home! Please take your temperature before coming in and stay home if it is over 100 or if you have a cough or shortness of breath. Gloves may be used during shift, but it is encouraged that everyone wash and sanitize their hands frequently throughout the day. If you choose to use work gloves, please maintain the same pair (take them home with you or bring a personal pair) rather than returning them to the bin.
About Habitat Restore: The Habitat ReStore plays an important role in the effort to elimiate substandard housing. Donated items from the community are sold and the proceeds offset most of Habitat MidOhio’s administrative costs, so cash contributions go directly toward building homes for desrerving families.
About Columbus Gives Back: Columbus Gives Back makes volunteering fun and easy!

#SocialTwist: Social Twists have been suspended until further notice, but typically we will also encourage volunteers to join us afterwards for food and drinks to better get to know the other cool folks in our group! Rather we encourage each of our volunteers to support local business during this time.
