A group of 19 students from New Jersey’s Gill St. Bernard School made a special trip to the Habitat West Hawaii ReStore to volunteer on May 26.

The students were visiting Hawai‘i to explore the Volcano National Park, and wanted to stop by Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii to make a difference in the place they were visiting.

The high school students arrived at the ReStore in the morning and split up between helping in the store and helping at the Ulu Wini Community Center.

They cleaned shelves, priced and organized new donations, and helped garden and clean up the outside area of the community center.
“The young men and women from Gill St. Bernard were a joy to have in our ReStore,” said Assistant Manager Kennocha Berhane. “They helped us out on a very busy day and had no problem handling the workload. It’s always a joy to see young people getting involved with the community!”

The ReStore is the retail portion of Habitat for Humanity West Hawai‘i’s operations. Donations of new and gently used household items, furniture and building supplies are sold at huge discounts to raise money for Habitat’s many programs and activities in the community.

Like most Habitat programs, the ReStore relies on volunteers to help with the day-to-day duties.
