Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity urgently needs volunteers
Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity is in need of volunteers to help us complete three current build projects. If you want a rewarding volunteer experience, many of our volunteers say that they receive more by volunteering than they feel they give…and that there is so much to learn!
Get hands-on experience on with Habitat! You’re never alone building with us; a professional staff member is always on site to teach new skills or put your expertise to best use. Construction volunteers perform a variety of skilled and unskilled tasks including framing, vinyl siding, painting, flooring, and installing trim. We work alongside each partner family for each home, so you will see and know the lives you are changing firsthand.
Opportunities change day-to-day, occur indoors and outdoors, and are typically four-hour shifts (morning or afternoon). Participating in build projects is an excellent opportunity for church and youth groups, local businesses looking for staff service time or volunteer time off opportunities, individuals in need of volunteer hours, or anyone with a desire to get involved with our community.
We are currently building 2 homes in Brainerd that are at the siding stage and have a third Brainerd home we hope to frame in before it gets too cold.
We save building materials, too! Pickup volunteers take our trucks and trailers throughout the Brainerd Lakes area, collecting new and gently used home accessories, appliances, and building supplies. Pickup volunteers go out daily (on a planned route, scheduled ahead of time) and deliver donations to our warehouse.
Salvage volunteers go to a site and save reusable, quality materials from demolition. All these items stock our ReStore, which is open to the public and sells merchandise discounted up to 75% off standard retail prices. All net proceeds support our mission to build affordable homes for working families. Plenty of volunteers like to do both! We need pickup volunteers every weekday and salvage volunteers roughly once per week.
