Students Help at the Morris Habitat ReStore

June 18, 2013 at 2:05 PM

MADISON, NJ - A number of high school students have found that volunteering at the Morris Habitat for Humanity ReStore is more than just putting in some hours for a good cause.  They come when they can, usually on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, although Thursday evenings the ReStore is open until 8 p.m.  They can come with a friend or make new friends, learn some new skills, and help customers find just the right purchases and in the process, help Morris Habitat raise funds for affordable housing.

James Nigro from Mendham started volunteering on Fridays or Saturdays just a week or two after the ReStore opened at their new location in Randolph, just off Route 10 across from the Kmart Plaza, and has found it to be great fun.

Each of the students started helping for different a  reason, one through their church CCD, another after helping at a ReStore event with 11th Hour Pet Rescue, and another after their father researched volunteer opportunities and came up with Morris Habitat.

Lucas Citarelli from Mountain Lakes said the special events at the ReStore are “so cool”.  He said, “You’ll come out for the fun and the free hot dogs and cake and then the day goes really quickly with the crowds that show up.  I love working with the customers.”

Erin Quinn, the new ReStore Assistant Manager said, “These kids are wonderful and their enthusiasm is contagious.  We’d love to have more high school students come and join in.”
