ReStore Volunteer FAQ’s

What do I need to wear?

No ballet shoes, Crocs, etc. If you arrive with inappropriate footwear, you will not be permitted to volunteer that day. Nametag (given to you by a staff member) Jacket/sweatshirt/raincoat – many tasks will require you to be outside, or in a backroom with open doors, so cold/rainy weather may be a factor.

What can’t I wear?

  • Loose-hanging jewelry
  • Hats/headwear, except baseball caps or religious headwear
  • Anything featuring offensive or explicit slogans, language or images
  • Overly-baggy clothing
  • Clothing that interferes with your ability to work, including items that you don’t want to get dirty or paint on
  • Anything that allows your undergarments to show, i.e. low-rise pants, sheer shirts, etc.
