Habitat Volunteer Opportunities

Richmond Habitat has a number of opportunities to volunteer this winter. Whether you're interested in swinging a hammer or helping out at the Habitat ReStore retail outlet, there's a service opportunity for you! To sign up individually or schedule a team day, email wguthrie@richmondhabitat.org. Individuals can also sign up directly on the calendar at https://volunteerup.com/Login.asp?w=i&o=240.  At this time all the open Saturdays cannot be booked in advance, but they are open and available for sign ups via the online calendar.

Volunteer at Habitat ReStore
If volunteering outside in the winter is not for you, Habitat is looking for help in the ReStore Warehouse. There are three shifts open to volunteers Monday-Saturday.

  • 10am-2pm
  • 2-5:30pm
  • 3:30-5:30pm (new Truck unloading shift): help us unload the truck at the end of the day so we are all set for the next day

To sign up for the ReStore or if you have any questions about volunteering, contact Jenn at jwilson@richmondhabitat.org, 804-228-1305 (ex. 205).

Cardboard City Challenge (March 18, 2017)

Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity will be hosting the third Cardboard City Challenge! Teams spend a night in cardboard boxes or constructed shacks in order to draw attention to housing issues, advocate for affordable housing, and educate participants on Habitat and why everyone should have a safe place to call home! This event is open to youth ages, 13-18. Each team must have at least two members. There is no maximum team size, but your team will have to fit in your shack.
