Love the Depot? Want to help out?

We are looking for motivated volunteers, 18 years or older, who can commit at least four hours per month assisting in the store, at workshops and events, on outreach projects and with occasional office tasks. You will work with our staff, in a fun place, serving your local community.

If you have time and are willing to make a commitment, pick up a volunteer application form in the store or download it here.  Email it back or fill it out and return it to a staff member. We will contact you if we feel it is a good fit, schedule a training session and set your schedule.

After 10 hours of service, and provided you continue as a volunteer, you will receive a discount for Depot materials (other than our special vintage items).

Join the fun, help divert waste from the landfill, and involve yourself in the world of creative reuse.

To inquire about volunteering, call 510.655.6628

Download, fill out our volunteer application form, and email to or fax it to 510.655.6536.

You can only volunteer with prior approval, so please make contact first.
