Volunteer

The Repurpose Project is a friendly, creative, and fun place to volunteer! 

Because we receive a high volume of material, we rely on volunteers to help process, package, and organize donations. We welcome volunteers who can commit to a regular schedule as well as one-time service groups. We are a fabulous place to fulfill community service hours.

Projects may include sorting, packaging, cleaning, organizing materials, and occasionally a hearty project in the yard. Let us know if you have any special skills that you think could help us out, such as fixing electronics, building maintenance, identifying antiques, or anything else!

To get started, all volunteers must attend an hour long orientation.  Once you’ve attended an orientation, you can schedule your volunteer shifts with our volunteer coordinator. Everyone is warmly welcomed to join us!

Email our volunteer coordinator, volunteer@repurposeproject.org, to schedule a time for a volunteer orientation. 

When you come to The Repurpose Project to volunteer:

  • Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty
  • Wear sturdy closed-toe shoes
  • Bring gloves if you wear them
  • Bring a water bottle or snacks

Some examples of volunteer activities are:

  • Rough Sorting
  • Creating art bins
  • Fabric sorting/packaging
  • Candy shoppe organization
  • Hardware sorting
  • Creative projects to beautify the store and exemplify the waste problems created by single use plastics
  • Electronics sorting/testing
  • Furniture repair

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!
