The Habitat foe Humanity ReStore in Williamsburg is a terrific place that is making a valuable contribution to the community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the extremely positive environment that has been created in the new Restore in Williamsburg. The customers that are both donating items and purchasing items are very enthusiastic about the Habitat store. The customers are consistently expressing an opinion of both benefiting from the opening of the new store as well as contributing to the Habitat for Humanity organization.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
attempt to encourage more volunteers to help the organization. There is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done. Williamsburg has lots of great charitiable organizations that compete for volunteers which makes it difficult to obtain all of the volunteer time needed.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
The ReStore in Williamsburg needs better tools and equipment to maximize the skills of the volunteers. I would allocate a small additional amount of funding towards acquiring additional supplies and tools that would allow the Store to be even more effective.
