Nevada County Habitat For Humanity Restore

Mentor: Shelly

Student: James, Class of 2022

James from the Bitney Prep Class of 2022 has an amazing internship at the Restore run by Nevada County Habitat For Humanity.

Nevada County Habitat ReStore is a nonprofit home improvement thrift store and donation center. They sell new and gently used building materials, furniture, appliances, home accessories, and more at a fraction of the retail price. Restore is open to the public and all proceeds stay locally — right here in Nevada County. The primary purpose of the Restore is to provide a sustainable revenue source for Nevada County Habitat for Humanity to provide and preserve affordable homeownership.

At the Restore, James is learning all sorts of skills: customer service and cashiering; receiving and organizing donations; and pricing, stocking, and organizing the sales floor. He’s also getting to participate in all sorts of special projects and events.
