Join us for ‘Behind the Scenes at the ReStore’ Volunteer Appreciation and Recruitment event on Wednesday, April 18th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. at the Campbell River ReStore, 1725 Willow Street.
This event is both to recognize and show appreciation to our hardworking team of volunteers, but also to recruit new people to come and check out what we do.
The evening will feature self-guided tours of our receiving, recycling and appliance testing areas — which are usually off limits to the public — so that people can chat with staff and volunteers who work in these areas.
Enjoy free refreshments and snacks, with dessert provided by Executive Chef Paul Heywood from the Anchor Inn. Chef Paul will be featuring his “World About Trifles”. Coffee will be supplied by Van Houtte.
Interested people are encouraged to come to learn about both ReStore and Build volunteer opportunities. ReStore volunteering is fun because you get to see all of the great stuff that is donated to our store, but if you would rather swing a hammer on the build site, that’s great, too. We received building permits on March 29th, and construction of the next four homes at our development at 477 Hilchey Road has commenced.
It doesn’t matter where you invest your time with Habitat…
every hour of your time helps us build community!
Active Habitat volunteers are encouraged to bring a friend who may be interested in volunteering, and they will be rewarded with a $10 gift card!
For those who like to shop, the ReStore will be open for business as usual, and attendees will also have an opportunity to purchase tickets to our ‘Creative Hands, Giving Hearts’ Raffle, as well as our in-store 50/50 draw.
This event is free, but we ask that you RSVP through Eventbrite so we can manage attendance numbers.
