Donating and Volunteering with ReStore in Nashville

Benjamin Perlin

Nashville, Tennessee-based photographer Benjamin “Ben” Perlin spends much of his free time giving back to his community. Over the years, Benjamin Perlin has volunteered at a number of local charitable and community organizations, including the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville’s ReStore.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville sells used and new furnishings for homes and offices through ReStores in Wilson, Davidson, and Dickson Counties. The furnishings and building supplies found in these stores have largely been donated by community members and include such items as working appliances that are less than seven years old, lumber, file cabinets, and new mattresses, among many other offerings. However, not every donated item can be accepted by ReStores. Unaccepted items include exercise equipment, typewriters, and ceiling fans. Donations can be made during regular business hours at any ReStore location.
In addition to donating to Habitat for Humanity ReStores, community members can volunteer as individuals or in groups. Volunteers are given the chance to work as either general volunteers, donation schedulers, or deconstruction volunteers. General volunteers stock shelves around the store and help customers during ReStore business hours, while donation schedulers answer the ReStore donation hotline and schedule pick-up times for items. Meanwhile, deconstruction volunteers travel around the city and remove windows, doors, and bathroom items.
