Event Time and Date
26 Days until this Event
Are you interested in serving the community by giving back, doing hands-on labor, and collaborating with people of all other faiths in the local community? Please join the NC State MSA in our collaboration with Habitat for Humanity and our 2017 Interfaith
Build. This build will take place from Aprill 22nd-July 1st, 2017, and the NC State MSA would like to have at least 5 volunteers come out on the first day of the build, April 22nd. Here is the link to get signed up for a volunteer slot! When the registration
asks for your group name, enter "NC State University MSA."
Now here's a bit more information about what to expect on the day of the build:
•You’ll start the day with a Safety Orientation, and all safety equipment will be provided.
•Your tools, supplies, and work plan will be ready and waiting for you when you arrive.
•When Habitat says “No experience necessary”, they mean it! Their staff is trained to work with volunteers and teach you everything you need to know. So don't be worried about not being able to hammer or drill anything, because I'm honestly not the greatest with tools either. It'll be a fun experience!
•The crowd is phenomenal, and you'll be working with a group of open-minded people who are passionate about helping others!
Here's what is expected of volunteers when you sign up for a shift:
• Prompt Arrival - It is crucial that we get the day off to a safe, productive start by presenting the Safety Orientation and tasks instructions to the whole group at the designated start time.
• Safety - Attend the Safety Orientation, adhere to safety protocols, and use the tools and equipment as instructed.
• Commitment - If you sign up, they’re counting on you!
• Flexibility - Sometimes it rains, or gets too hot, or we finish a task faster than anticipated or we ask everyone on site join forces to rally around a crucial task – it’s cool! We’ll roll with it.
Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before the start of your shift. Staff will be on site to begin volunteer check-in beginning 15 minutes before the start of each shift.
