Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester
The Habitat for Humanity Worcester ReStore collects and sells donated housing materials. Proceeds are used to eliminate poverty housing. A reliable and sustainable volunteer base is vital for ReStore’s success. Potential volunteers are abundant on the college campuses in the region. This project delivered a directory of each school’s connections that expressed interest in assisting ReStore. Completion of this project required survey collections and interviews of ReStore staff and college student volunteers. Data analysis was conducted on surveys and interviews, and recommendations were made based on the findings. The recommendations consist of approaching schools differently for marketing materials, creating incentives for volunteers, and utilizing the directory for connection management.
