October Habitat RVA Opportunities

The Richmond area Habitat for Humanity is in need of volunteers for the following projects in October! Is your organization looking for a way for your group to serve? Are you or your family looking for volunteer opportunities? There’s something for everyone!

Carpentry Volunteers Needed next week!

Habitat needs folks with carpentry skills to help us with cutting Project Playhouse kits on Monday, 10/11 and Tuesday, 10/12. Individuals definitely need to be comfortable with reading cut sheets and using power tools. Email wguthrie@richmondhabitat.org if you can help out!

Playhouse Event Volunteers- Saturday, 10/16 and Sunday, 10/17

Habitat is looking for a few more event volunteers to help with set up/clean up and running tables of supplies for volunteers. The set up time is 7am-8:30am. The event is 8:30am-2pm both days. Email me with any questions or if you want to help out (wguthrie@richmondhabitat.org ).

Sunday, October 24th: Halloween Cornhole Tournament          

Habitat is hosting and benefiting from a Halloween themed Cornhole Tournament and is still looking for teams to participate. Prizes will be awarded for cornhole champs and costumes. https://rvahalloweencornhole.eventbrite.com
