Who: We will be volunteering with Habitat for Humanity East Bay. Founded in 1988, Habitat for Humanity East Bay was formed as an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International serving Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Thier mission is to create successful homeownership opportunities for families with limited incomes by building sustainable housing and revitalizing neighborhoods.
What: We will be working on a home in Oakland. All sorts of work takes place on a Habitat construction site. Please be prepared to assist in whatever the day's tasks may be and remember to be flexible and patient. Every job helps to build homes! Some tasks may involve operating power tools or working at heights on scaffolding or ladders. Volunteers will not be asked to do any tasks that make them uncomfortable.
When: Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: 9507 Edes Ave., Oakland 94603
What to bring: Volunteers are welcome to bring tools should they wish. However, Habitat for Humanity will provide tools and safety equipment as well. Work clothes and sturdy, close-toed shoes are requested. Volunteers may wish to also bring a refillable water bottle.
Additional information: The organization will give an introductory talk describing what tasks will be worked on and expectations for the day. Please note that anyone can volunteer to help, experienced or not. Volunteers will need to sign a waiver form that can be completed upon arrival, and serves as a check in list. All volunteers must be at least 16 years old, and anyone under 18 must print out a waiver form and have it signed by their parent/guardian prior to showing up. Lunch will be provided by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
