Truck Driver Assistant
ReStore is looking for a motivated individual to help our drivers pick up large donations at least one day a week. This volunteer must be able to consistently lift at least 50 pounds. Why go to the gym when you could volunteer for ReStore?
Volunteers must be at least 14 years old. Volunteers 14 and 15 year old must be accompanied with a parent or guardian willing to volunteer as well. Volunteers under the age of 18 must bring a parent or guardian signature on their waiver on their first day of volunteering. Volunteers must wear closed toed, thick soled shoes. Shirts with sleeves and long pants are required (high heels, sandals, shorts, leggings, yoga pants, or revealing clothing and clothing with inappropriate slogans will not be permitted). All volunteers must sign up for a volunteer shift prior volunteering: https://habitatmm.volunteermatrix.com. If you are more than 10 min late for your volunteer shift, you will have missed the orientation and you may be turned away.
A mask must be worn while on site, regardless of vaccination status. The mask must fit snugly and cover the nose and mouth. Volunteers are permitted to bring their own mask but the construction staff will make a judgement if acceptable to wear on the job site. Please note: neck gaiters, handkerchiefs and masks with valves are not permitted on site. It is critical that volunteers NOT PARTICIPATE while they are experiencing illness symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or loss of taste or smell or other symptoms associated with COVID-19. Volunteers who appear to have symptoms upon arrival or who have become sick during the day will immediately be separated from others and sent home. If exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, volunteers must delay in-person volunteering for either 14 days or until after receipt of a negative COVID test conducted no sooner than 5 days after exposure. Parties may bypass quarantine and/or testing if they have had and recovered from COVID in the previous 3 months or are fully vaccinated and show no symptoms of COVID-19.
