We are happy to have those in need of court mandated community service hours join us at the ReStore. Please note that we cannot accept those who have the following charges, including but not limited to: felonies, larceny, theft, any violent offenses (this includes fighting/simple assault charges), and those with sexual offender charges. If you are not sure if your charges are accepted, please make sure that you contact the Volunteer Manager BEFORE attending an orientation session.
*We have limited space available for those seeking court ordered community service. If the orientation sessions are full, then you will have to wait until the next session is available. Those looking to fulfill court ordered hours may only attend the orientation session specified for court.
If you are looking to perform community service hours, but have not yet been to court, you will still need to sign up under the court ordered community service tab. All fields will still apply.
Tell the Volunteer Program Manager upon arrival at the Orientation if you have any physical limitations that will affect your ability to perform certain tasks. It is not uncommon to lift up to 50 pounds at a time or to help move couches, large windows, heavy doors, and appliances.
If you have any mitigating medical concerns (pregnancy, back problems, etc.), or cannot handle the physical demands described above, please reconsider your community service options. While there are some “light duty” activities in the ReStore, these tasks are limited and it may be difficult to obtain hours.
In order to volunteer, you must bring the following items with you to the Welcome Session:
- You MUST bring a photo I.D. (driver’s license, school I.D., etc).
If you are completing Court Ordered Community Serve (or obtaining hours for a future court date), you MUST bring a letter/paperwork from your lawyer, case coordinator, or the court systems, stating that following:
How many hours you intend to complete
The nature of you ticket/ citation
Confirm that you have NEVER been convicted of a felony, larceny, or theft.
The lawyer/case coordinator/ someone from the court system’s contact information
*Please note that you will NOT be able to complete your community service with us without this information.
- Additional Court Ordered Agreement Paperwork attached here.
We track all community service hours and will supply you with the appropriate paperwork to certify your completion of any required service.
