Volunteer Spotlight: Tracey and Farrah

Meet Tracey and Farrah, ReStore’s talented Staging Volunteers. Although the two began volunteering at ReStore a short three months ago, they have already had a huge impact. This skilled duo volunteer at ReStore North to arrange various items into beautifully staged masterpieces that display the potential of well-loved furniture.

Tracey has supported Habitat Edmonton many times in the past by volunteering on Habitat build sites, but never at a ReStore. She decided to change that, and had just completed her first shift at ReStore when she noticed a request for Staging Volunteers in Habitat’s monthly volunteer newsletter. With a history in furniture staging, Tracey jumped at the opportunity and applied for the position. Farrah, on the other hand, is a long-time ReStore shopper with experience purchasing and staging items in her own home. She quickly applied for the staging position when it became available.  

Both Tracey and Farrah’s favourite part of volunteering at ReStore is the people with whom they get to interact. They have received warm support from volunteers and staff at each ReStore they visit, and they feel right at home. Tracey and Farrah also enjoy chatting with ReStore customers about their favorite items, and help them find the right pieces for their home.

Although Tracey and Farrah had never met each other prior to their staging positions, they love volunteering together at ReStore. They find each other admiring the same items and having fun as they rework ReStore items into staged pieces.

We are thrilled to have Tracey and Farrah on the Habitat volunteer team, and we can’t wait to see their exciting future creations. Stop by ReStore North at 8210 Yellowhead Trail to see Tracey and Farrah’s fantastic work!
