ReStore is staffed by only a few employees and is successful because of our hundreds of volunteers. Come for a day, once a week, or every day! Whether you like organizing, cleaning, picking up, repurposing or offering customer service, there are plenty of different ways to make a difference. For additional questions, contact ReStore at (419) 382-1658 or fill out the form below.
Support the store that builds strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
On every site, we are committed to creating a safe environment for our volunteers to work and for our patrons to shop. Every ReStore volunteer will participate in safety training before beginning work and regular volunteers are provided updates and additional learning on a monthly basis.

Court Ordered Community Service
We are an approved agency with many courts including Toledo Municipal Court, Sylvania Municipal Court and Monroe County Court.
Community Ordered Community Service (COCS) hours are performed in ReStore, which is open Tuesday-Saturdays, 10am-6pm. Before coming to ReStore, you MUST call 419-382-1964. We do not receive notification from the courts (despite what your paperwork might say). When you call, please have your court paperwork ready so you can tell us some basic information.
In order to volunteer at ReStore, you must first schedule a mandatory, 1-hour orientation (which will count towards your hours). Orientations are held 10am-3pm, Tuesday-Friday.
We offer flexible scheduling so that you can schedule your COCS hours around any other commitments you may have. However, please keep in mind that it may take as many as 7-10 days before we can fit you in to our orientation schedule. You will not be allowed to schedule any hours with us until after you complete your orientation. Do not expect special consideration if your deadline is near.
We do not guarantee that we will accept you to perform your COCS hours with us. During your initial phone call, we will ask you a few questions so that we can determine your eligibility.
