Here’s a little update on my adventures in volunteering at
Habitat For Humanity.
First, I thought I would give you the steps I took to start the process
of volunteering there.
This info might be good for those of you whom might be considering
volunteering for your local Habitat For Humanity.
1) Visited our local website
2) Clicked on volunteering and found email address
3) Emailed her for information on how to get started
4) Went to a mandatory volunteer orientation
class and signed up
I went to sign up for construction site volunteering.
But after receiving a handout, I soon found out that they have multiple areas
for one to volunteer in.
Ex: Marketing/Events, Office, Restore, Family Services, etc.
So… the next thing I know,
I am volunteering to be on a committee for a Restore “Design on a Dime” workshop.
ReStore is a retail outlet owned and managed by Habitat For Humanity.
It’s a workshop event for our LOCAL ReStore…
organized by the Restore Ops Manager and another volunteer.
The workshop includes home décor projects chosen from a
Better Homes and Garden Book…
that anyone could create on their own.
I volunteered to teach one of the classes on making this creation.
I will show people how to spruce up an end table by trimming it with clothespins.
from construction site to teaching a small class!
I am a little nervous, though.
It easy to write a tutorial online but it’s another story to
verbally teach and show (hands on) someone how to do something.
It’s in February… so I will let you know how that goes.
And I’m still planning on construction site volunteering.
Ok…on another note…
WE GOT SNOW!!
8” at our house.
For our area… that means your snowed in for a few days!
