Volunteers from California Grocer’s Association join together as a team to sort donations at “ReStore”
A group of 12 enthusiastic volunteers from California Grocer’s Association recently put their time and muscles on loan to United Way certified partner Sacramento Habitat for Humanity. The organization builds affordable housing for qualified Sacramento low income families, sells these homes at cost and provides no down payment/zero interest mortgages. In addition to the construction process, the organization manages the ReStore which recycles donated items such as gently used appliances, furniture and construction supplies back into the community to help support the organization.The store is open to the public and has treasures for everyone.
Volunteers heard from the staff of both United Way and Habitat for Humanity before working in the ReStore warehouse, keeping busy sorting, organizing, stocking and pricing donations from a recent donation drive. Volunteers all worked really hard, but ReStore manager Byron kept the troops motivated and having a fun time, making the experience beyond enjoyable for all and allowing for team building to take place. Thank you to California Grocer’s Association for stepping up to volunteer in partnership with United Way as well as the individual volunteers who made a huge difference in just one day of hard work. Finally, thank you to Sacramento Habitat for Humanity for hosting the volunteers and providing this opportunity.
