St. Paul Local Missions Opportunity – Habitat for Humanity Build October 9th, 2021
Our Habitat for Humanity build day is Saturday October 9th and our shift is 8am-2pm. Habitat asks that we arrive 10-15 minutes early so we can get signed in and briefed on our project and safety rules, and then start promptly at 8. We can coordinate possible carpools from St Paul as the time draws near. 
 
Currently the team size is limited to 10 volunteers due to Covid19 protocols. The team build is typically just one shift, but we have the option of doing a 8am-12pm and 12pm-4pm shift if we have more than 15 volunteers (which I think we will have).
 
Each volunteer must register on the Habitat website and fill-out their waiver online. You can sign-up right up to the day of the build, however I suggest you try to get signed up right away in case you have any trouble. The online registration details are listed below.
 
Additional information:
  • All tools and supplies (such as gloves, safety glasses…) will be supplied. You only need to bring yourselves.
  • As far as PPE, closed toe shoes are a must. Pants and hats are recommended, but not required. Dress comfortably and in items that you will not mind getting dirty or ruining. If we paint, it will not come off of your clothes. All other PPE is provided.
  • Habitat will provide snacks and refreshments for us. Volunteers are more than welcome to bring along a drink/reusable cup or snack of your own if you have something specific you want to bring.
