Volunteers needed to tend Habitat shelves

Amber Hodges, volunteer coordinator, rearranges the office supply shelf at Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore Home Supply Center.

Good at reorganization? Can’t help but run your finger down a dusty shelf? Have just one free hour a week to help build a better community?

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore Home Supply Center, 2936 North Ave., is seeking volunteers to help organize their store shelves. Borrowed from an idea popular with public libraries and highway maintenance programs, the store kicked-off a new “Adopt-A-Shelf” program Jan. 1.

“We thought this would be a good way to get people involved without asking too much of their time,” said Barbara Lancaster, manager.

Just one hour a week would be extremely helpful to the store and fulfilling their mission to support sustainable community development, said Amber Hodges, volunteer coordinator.

Hodges hopes individuals or groups will work together to keep the store in a neat and orderly arrangement which will make it easier for customers to find what they are, or didn’t know, they were looking for.

A sign on the end of the aisle will say who has volunteered to keep that shelf in order, giving recognition to anybody who volunteers.

The ReStore’s proceeds support the entire Habitat for Humanity program in Mesa County, which could not be done without a wide variety of volunteers, said Lindy Hodges, program coordinator.

To volunteer, call 208-1725.
