Our Volunteers Make It All Possible
You don't have to "swing a hammer" to help your Habitat for Humanity of Burke County. All we ask is a willing hands and a loving heart. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and most are fairly new to construction and retail sales.
Our volunteers include retired surgeons that hang sheetrock, family groups who spend a Saturday painting interiors. church groups learning to install siding, teens digging in to install community gardens, crafters who stock our Ripple Store and Christmas Shop and seniors who do just about everything!
Don't think it is too hard or that you don't have the right skills...there's a special place just for you. Call today and schedule your free time so it becomes VALUABLE in a whole new way.
From crafters that create literally something from nothing to folks stocking the shelves, unloading trucks, greeting customers and helping with checkout, our ReStore volunteers truly make it all possible.
Donations to the ReStore are sold at discounted prices to build the resources necessary to build our Habitat homes. Volunteers allow Habitat to operate our ReStore with a very small paid staff and low overhead.
Mostly retired, our Wednesday Warriors are skilled, seasoned volunteers who take on the major building efforts such as installing walls and trusses and continue to support the building process until the home is completely finished and dedicated. During building season, workdays begin at 8 AM on Wednesdays and continue until "we get to a good stopping spot." Want to join the Wednesday Warrior team, call the office at 828-437-0370 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SATURDAY WORK CREWS
The bulk of our construction crews work on Saturday from approximately 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM.. Churches, civic groups and dedicated individuals work under the supervision of our Construction Manager in all aspects of the construction process. From hanging sheetrock to roofing, from painting woodwork to installing siding and so much more, Habitat's volunteers bring the enthusiasm and energy that allows us to quickly build quality homes for deserving families.
The building season is typically March through October . Please call the office for locations and times. Organize a group and bring your fiends for a day you'll never forget! Call 828-437-0370 or email email@example.com.
