In an effort to protect our volunteers and staff, all volunteer opportunities will continue to be postponed through the end of 2020. If you have made a group reservation to volunteer in this time frame, we would like to discuss re-booking your group for a future build day. If you are volunteering as a single volunteer or with a smaller group, we are happy to do the same.
Many of our hardworking homeowner candidates perform jobs right at the forefront of this crisis, including health care workers, teachers, service sector employees—those to whom if they missed a paycheck could mean catastrophe. If you made plans to volunteer or support Habitat for Humanity in the coming months, please consider supporting our mission through an online donation. Click here to learn more.
For any volunteer related questions, please contact Jack Shanks, VP of Homeowner and Volunteer Programs at email@example.com.
