MLK Day of Service - Repair

Building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter, Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia is excited to partner with the Habitat Philadelphia Young Professionals on MLK Day of Service 2020 to work on repairing a home that is part of our Veterans Repairs program!

Volunteers will work onsite with a Habitat Site Supervisor and AmeriCorps members.  No previous construction experience is needed and our skilled staff will teach you everything you need to know to complete the work for the day. For this project, we will be doing demolition on drywall with mold as well as basement structural work. Because of the nature of this work, respirators and tyvek suits will be mandatory, so we request that volunteers understand that discomfort with the suits/respirators or respiratory issues will prohibit their ability to volunteer on site that day.

The job is located in Germantown. Volunteers will meet the Habitat staff at the house at 8:30am. Please arrive on time so we can orient your group with an introduction, a few safety tips, and so we can get started on schedule.

The volunteer day will be from 8:30am - 3:30pm.  Please bring a bag lunch and snacks as needed.  Water will be available onsite.  We recommend that volunteers come dressed in layers, as the day may be chilly.  Please wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty -- closed toed, shoes are required.  Habitat Philadelphia will provide all of the safety equipment, materials and tools that are needed.

If you have any other questions about the day, please contact volunteer@habitatphiladelphia.org or (215) 765-6000x10. Thank you in advance for your service with Habitat Philadelphia! We look forward to working with you!
