Our most common volunteer opportunity is to help on a build 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 more information call the Habitat Office at (920) 921-6623 or email us here!
Do I need to sign up to volunteer?
Yes, you need to sign up in advance to volunteer. Please contact Emily Arthur to sign up for a specific build day. Check out our calendar of Volunteer Opportunities on our website. If you have never volunteered with us before, you will need to fill out a Volunteer Information Form and a Release/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?
If you have them, bring safety glasses, a hammer, tape measure and gloves. If you do not have these items, they will be provided for you.
