Volunteers are crucial to the ministry of Habitat on the job site, in the Habitat ReStore, and more. 75-80% of our houses are built with volunteer labor, so our homeowners depend on people coming to help them build the house for which they have been qualified.
To volunteer with HFHAC on the job site, contact the Habitat office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Service opportunities are available for both individual volunteers and groups of up to 10 people. Volunteer hours on the job site are typically, 8 am – 11:30 am, Tuesdays through Saturdays. If you want to come alone, to find out where we are working call 336-266-9148. You will be asked to sign a volunteer waiver once you arrive, so please come before 8am. If you want to bring some friends with you to serve, email the office to schedule a day and be sent waivers for your group: email@example.com.
We have 2 ReStores in Alamance County where you could volunteer. To volunteer in the Burlington ReStore, please call (336)222-8292. The Burlington ReStore is open Monday – Friday from 9:30 am – 5:30 pm and Saturday from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. To volunteer in the Mebane ReStore, please call 919-568-9385. The hours in Mebane are 9:30am-5:30pm Tuesday-Friday and Saturday from 9:00am – 4:00pm. The ReStore Manager in either store can assist you in scheduling yourself or your group for service hours in the ReStore. Proceeds from the ReStore go toward building houses in Alamance County so even when you serve in the ReStore, you are working to provide housing to those who need it!
There are other ways you could get involved with Habitat, depending on your personal interests. Currently we have people volunteer to provide plants for homeowners, provide lunches/snacks for construction volunteers, lead classes on homeownership for our partner families, or help in the office with mailings. We would love to have people donate decorating skills to set up displays in the ReStores, hold demonstrations for DIY projects, photograph or video events, and other unique ways that are suited to who you are! To volunteer with HFHAC in these and other ways, please contact the Habitat office by calling (336)222-8191, and select Option 4 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to serving with you!
