Oconee County Habitat for Humanity held a volunteer fair on Monday, September 24 from 1 - 4 pm at our ReSale Store at 130 Bountyland Road in Seneca.
Habitat for Humanity is its volunteers. The corollary: there are never enough to meet our needs.The number of houses we can construct is not limited by money, sites, or qualified applications. It is the availability of willing volunteers.
The mission of Habitat for Humanity is to build homes, but construction represents only a fraction of our volunteer needs. The Resale store is open 21 hours a week, requiring an energetic and engaged staff. Volunteers can serve on the board of directors, on the family selection, family partners and construction committees, or assist with grant writing, public awareness, church relations, finance and accounting, volunteer coordination, and on and on... If you have particular skills in the building trades, that is great, but even if you are more likely to hammer a thumb than a nail, we can use your help!
Our drop-in volunteer fair was a great chance for interested volunteers to meet some of our team, but you can still contact us to find out all the ways you could be involved in our organization and work with some great people! Few activities give greater satisfaction than seeing a family, who never thought it could afford to, move into their own new home.
