FAQs

What volunteer opportunities are available?

Our most common volunteer opportunity is to help on a build site. Construction volunteers help with various tasks, including framing, roofing, drywall, painting, or siding. We also look for individuals to volunteer to provide lunch to the construction volunteers on build days. For a description of these and other volunteer opportunities, please visit the Types of Volunteers section on our website.

Do I need to sign up to volunteer?

Yes, you need to sign up in advance to volunteer. Please contact Rodney Overcash at (336)626-5594 to sign up for a specific build day. Check out our calendar of Volunteer Opportunities on our website. If you have never volunteered with us before, you will need to fill out a Volunteer Information Form and a Release and 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 are allowed. Sunscreen is also recommended if you are working outside. Remember, you are working on a construction site. So you will get dirty!

What do I bring?

If you have them, bring safety glasses, a hammer, tape measure and gloves. If you do not have these items, they will be provided for you.

What should I expect for a build day?

8:30 AM                     Check In at Build Site

8:35 AM                     Morning Devotion and Safety Meeting

8:40 AM                     Construction Begins

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 Rodney Overcash at (336)626-5594 for more details.
