What volunteer opportunities are available?
Our most common volunteer opportunities are helping on the construction site or in one of our stores. There are limited opportunities to be on a committee, help in the office, become a Family Advocate, and assist at a community build.
Do I need to sign up to volunteer?
Yes, you need to sign up in advance to volunteer. Please contact us at 828-248-3178 to sign up for a specific build day. If you have never volunteered with us before, you will need to fill out a Volunteer Application Form, Authorization for Background and Drug Screen, 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 or loose fitting clothing is allowed. Sunscreen is also recommended if you are working outside. Remember, you will be working on a construction site or in a ReStore – you may get dirty!
What do I bring?
For the construction site, bring safety glasses, a hammer, tape measure and gloves, if you have them. If you don’t have them, they will be provided. If you’re volunteering in the ReStore, wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes.
What if I have no previous construction experience?
No previous construction experience is required. Volunteers are divided up into teams with a Crew Leader. The Crew Leader will mentor you and teach you everything you need to know.
What if I have previous construction experience?
We are always looking for Crew Leaders to help lead groups of volunteers. If you are interested in being a Crew Leader, please contact us at 828-248-3178 for more details.
