We need your help operating our ReStores on the Island. At each of our two ReStores, we renew 32 tons of products every month – which is no small amount. We also recycle over nine tons of metal every month. But we couldn’t do it without volunteer help.
ReStore volunteers assist with preparing store merchandise, receiving donations, and helping customers. An orientation is required for first-time ReStore volunteers. We have ReStores in both Campbell River and Courtenay.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact our Volunteer Services Manager:
