Volunteer hours for all projects are 7:45a.m. -1p.m. Volunteers should arrive promptly at 7:45a.m. for safety instructions. You may park on site. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting messy and closed-toed shoes. Also, don’t forget sunscreen and a water bottle!

All volunteers will need to print and complete the Volunteer Waiver forms on our websiteand bring it to the project site. No prior experience is required, and you don’t need to bring your own tools, but work gloves are recommended. Construction schedule is subject to change, so be sure to check Volunteer Up before your scheduled build day. We hope to see you at the work sites in the upcoming months!

In addition to construction volunteers, we also have many volunteer opportunities in our ReStores and our office. These opportunities are on-going and have flexible and workable hours. If interested, please email cathy@ourtownshabitat.org.
