Construction Volunteers

Description:  Construction volunteers help with a variety of tasks on the work site.  They may pour footings for the foundation, build the interior walls, install shingles, hang drywall, or put the finishing touches on the house.
Skills Needed:  No construction skill or building experience is necessary.  All that is needed is a willingness to learn, work hard and have a good time.
Dress:  Please be sure to dress in layers, and remember that open-toed shoes are not allowed on site.
Groups: Please contact John Corcoran at (507) 312-0254 to schedule a weekday or Saturday for your group to work on site.
Individuals:  Please contact John Corcoran at (507) 312-0254.

Work Site Hospitality

Description:  Prepare and serve food for hungry workers onsite.  This is the perfect way to contribute to Habitat without doing construction.  Habitat always says that the quality of our worksite volunteers is only as good as the food they are given!  Habitat provides the plates, napkins, plastic utensils, cups, and bowls.  We also provide water for a beverage.
Time commitment:  Saturday morning break at 10:30 am and lunch at 12:30 pm.
Contact: Please contact John Corcoran at (507) 312-0254 to sign up.
