Volunteer

Thanks for your interest in volunteering with us!

We have FOUR builds happening right now!

Sites 1 and 2:

715 Willow Street, Faribault and 1004 Central Avenue in Faribault are both on track to start painting in January and it looks like we’ll wrap up both of those houses in early February.

Sites 3 and 4:

712 30th Street NW and 506 30th Street NW in Faribault have just started.  We have a tremendous group of volunteers who have been working in the snow to get these two builds started!  We’ll be looking for volunteers in late February or March to start the interior work on these houses.

We could use your help to swing a hammer or bring a meal!  Click on the image below and you’ll be directed to our build schedule.

If you have any questions, call Jodi Beach, our Volunteer Coordinator, (507) 403-7868 or e-mail, jodihabitat@gmail.com

There are a couple of things we need you to do before coming to the build site:

1.  Watch this short SAFETY VIDEO

2.  Complete this Release and Waiver of Liability Form

When you arrive on our build site, you’ll be greeted by the Site Host who will have you do the following things:

  • Sign in as a volunteer to log your hours.
  • Sign a waiver if you don’t do it on line (above).
  • Go through the day’s safety procedures and outfit yourself in the necessary safety gear.

Parking at Build Sites

We kindly ask that you do not park in front of mailboxes and that you spread your vehicles out along the road so neighbors still have some street parking available. Thanks for helping us be good neighbors!


Age Requirements to Volunteer

You need to be at least 18 years old to be on the build site.


Mileage Reimbursement for Volunteers

Are you over 55? If so you can be reimbursed for your travel to and from a volunteer activity through the Catholic Charities RSVP program. Print a Common Good RSVP Volunteer Enrollment Form and return it to the address on the form. When you sign in at a volunteer sign, make sure you also record your mileage and sign the RSVP form. Unsigned hours will not be reimbursed.
