Avoid congregating in any space too small to maintain social distancing or where physical contact is likely
Do not share tools
Sanitize all tools kept on the jobsite at the end of the day
Wear all personal protective equipment
Wear a mask and gloves at all times when working in the ReStore and on the Construction Site
Sneeze/cough into your elbow

CERVIS and have been counted in the safe, social distancing headcount quota.
If a family member or someone close to you gets sick and you have been in contact with them, please stay home

Step 1: Create a Volunteer Profile
All individual volunteers must create a volunteer profile. Click “Register for an Event” or “Sign In” below and follow the instructions to create your volunteer profile and tell us a little more about yourself! (Please note that you must be at least 16 years old to volunteer on a job site.)
Step 2: Attend a HabiTour
Once you’ve made a profile, you will need to register for a HabiTour. HabiTours are one hour volunteer orientations where we go more in-depth about the Habitat mission and volunteer opportunities.
Step 3: It’s Hammer Time!
After you attend a HabiTour, you can begin signing up volunteer shifts. Just log into your volunteer profile to see a list of available volunteer days.

Volunteer Opportunity Descriptions:
Habitat homes are built with 90% volunteer labor. Construction volunteers work alongside our dedicated construction team, Crew Leader volunteers, and partner families to help us build Habitat houses.
Construction volunteer opportunities take place Wednesday-Saturday and a full day commitment from 7:30am-3:30pm is required.
The ReStore is Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento’s retail outlet where we sell new and used building supplies and furniture to help support our mission. ReStore volunteers help keep merchandise in order and stocked, assist customers, assemble product, and help with basic retail duties such as stocking, pricing, cleaning, and accepting donations.
ReStore volunteer opportunities take place Tuesday-Friday from 9am-1pm/2-6pm and Saturday 10am-2pm/2pm-5pm.
There are a variety of ways to support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento beyond the job site or ReStore. Considering joining one of our committees or volunteer in the office!
