Frequently Asked Questions
What volunteer opportunities are available?
Our most common volunteer opportunity is to help on a building site. Construction volunteers help with various tasks, including framing, roofing, drywall, painting, or siding. We also look for individuals to volunteer to provide lunch to the construction volunteers on build days. For a description of these and other volunteer opportunities, please visit the Types of Volunteers section on our website.
Do I need to sign up to volunteer?
Yes, you need to sign up in advance to volunteer. Please contact email@example.com to sign up for a specific build day. If you have never volunteered with us before, you will need to fill out a Volunteer Information Form and a Release and Waiver.
What do I wear?
Wear appropriate clothing for the weather and the task for your volunteer day. For your safety, no open-toed shoes are allowed. Sunscreen is also recommended if you are working outside. Remember, you are working on a construction site, so you will get dirty!
What do I bring?
All supplies are provided for you by us. We only ask that you bring a positive attitude and be ready to work!
