  • Mission

    Re-Source York inspires our community by being environmentally and socially responsible.

Volunteer

Our stores rely heavily on volunteers like YOU to keep everything running well and looking nice. And, of course, keeping our customers smiling.

Opportunities for involvement might include data entry, customer service, donation pickups, and cleaning, organizing and stocking inventory. With the rapid turnover of goods, you will find the work challenging but the atmosphere is pleasant and the people enjoyable.

Any number of hours per week are acceptable. Retirees and students welcome. Maybe you have experience in building, home repair or remodeling. Perhaps you’d like to know you’re making a difference environmentally or you really enjoy working with the public. Our orientation and training will help you fit right in.

We invite you to call us at 852-7574 or email nikki@resourceyork.com to discuss how you can help.
