When most people think of volunteering for Habitat, they think of hammering nails and raising walls on a construction site. Building or remodeling a home alongside other volunteers – and even a future Habitat homeowner – is an impactful and sometimes life-changing experience. It’s also a great opportunity to learn skills that you can apply around your own home!
A team exercise like working on a Habitat build site:
reduces barriers of communication
provides recognition that no task is so trivial that it isn’t important
teaches tolerance and acceptance of different work styles
allows discovery of new skills
Construction volunteers must be 16 and older. No construction experience is necessary. Construction times are generally 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., weekdays and on Saturdays.
We particularly need volunteers on Saturdays!
Volunteers take on a wide range of responsibilities and are vital to keep the ReStore operating as a successful retail outlet. The ReStore welcomes volunteers ages 16+ as well as youths ages 14-15 when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Volunteers May Assist With:
Accepting, moving and preparing donations for sales floor
If you are required to complete community service hours mandated by the court system, you must bring a court-ordered placement sheet with you. If your attorney recommends that you complete community service prior to your court date, you must bring a letter from your attorney stating your charge. We do not accept charges for theft of any kind or violent crime.
Contact Myra Combs, Executive Director, at 336.789.4663 prior to starting your hours.
Many if our volunteers devote whole days to construction sites or working in the ReStore. It would be greatly apreciated to have meals provided for our volunteers. If you would like to provide a meal – home-cooked or otherwise – for volunteers please contact Myra Combs, Executive Director, at 336-789-4663 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many groups are used on construction sites for large projects! Contact Myra Combs at 336-789-4663 to make arrangements!
