Habitat for Humanity in Loveland builds year-round and construction volunteers are essential to their success. The Loveland Habitat organization is on schedule to build 6 homes in the upcoming year and will need more than one thousand volunteers to complete their goal. While attending the International Rally, WBCCI members will have the opportunity to volunteer on a construction site or at the ReStore, Habitat’s home improvement store that sells building materials, appliances and furniture. Please consider registering to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity while you are in Loveland to assist the local affiliate in their endeavor to build decent, affordable homes.
Construction site assignments will be available on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The tools and safety equipment you need for the job will be provided. Typical tasks include framing, drywall, soffit installation, interior and exterior painting, as well as landscaping. If you don’t want to climb a ladder or operate a power tool there are a variety of other activities on the job site to keep you busy. Previous construction experience is not required, any skill level is welcome. Remember, Habitat homes are built almost entirely with volunteer labor. Tuesday and Thursday hours are 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Friday and Saturday hours are 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Volunteers bring their own lunch but snacks and water are provided. Construction site volunteers must be 18 years or older.
ReStore assignments will be available Monday through Saturday. ReStore tasks are typically indoors and the physical demands are less than required on a construction site. Volunteers help receive and process donations, price and display merchandise, test electronics and appliances, and assist with customer service. The income generated through ReStore sales is very important to the Habitat mission of improving the lives of families in the Loveland area. ReStore assignments have flexible hours from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. If you choose to volunteer at the ReStore please plan to be there for a minimum of 2 hours. ReStore volunteers must be 15 years or older.
