Central Ohio AGA Community Service Event: Central AGA is looking for members to volunteer at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store East


The Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio ReStores play an important role in the effort to eliminate substandard housing in Central Ohio. New, used, and surplus donated goods are collected and sold to the public at discounted prices. The proceeds from these sales offset most of Habitat MidOhio’s administrative costs- so cash contributions go directly toward building homes and revitalizing communities locally and abroad. The ReStores also allow local residents to recycle and repurpose items that would otherwise end up in our landfills. Last year alone, Habitat MidOhio ReStore operations diverted more than 2,600 tons of reusable materials from area landfills.


Volunteers are needed to assist customers, stock shelves, organize product displays, and unload donations from the vehicles of individual donors and ReStore trucks. Volunteers also assist with the processing of donations and administrative paperwork. Heavy lifting can be involved. Individuals must be 14 years older to volunteer in the ReStore. Youth under the age of 18 must have parent or guardian permission.


When: Saturday June 2nd from 9AM-12PM

Where: Habitat for Humanity, ReStore East (3140 Westerville Road, Columbus OH 43224)
