Construction Volunteers & Crew Catering
Our volunteers support our homeowners in all phases of site preparation, home construction, landscaping and repairs. We welcome skilled, semi-skilled and DIY hobbyists, along with unskilled laborers who simply want to lend a helping hand (or hammer). Here are some areas we can always use help with as we complete construction on a new Habitat home:
In addition, these hard-working crews need to be fed, so we also welcome sponsors or caring hosts to prepare or provide a meal on our build days. We typically have between 6 and 15 volunteers who appreciate a good meal and the kind hospitality our community provides.
