If you have any trouble signing up for a build day please contact our Volunteer Chair. You can also sign up to build at any of our monthly social events.
No! Everyone is welcome to build with HYP. Habitat for Humanity of Dane County provides a construction leader to help you throughout the day. We only ask that you come with positive attitude and willingness to learn.
All of the tools that you need will be provided. However, you may bring your own hand tools if you wish. HYP and Habitat for Humanity of Dane County assume no liability for lost or damaged items.
We encourage volunteers to dress in layers. Please wear clothing that can get dirty, stained, etc. Heavy footwear is recommended. Closed toed shoes must be worn. No open-toed or high-heeled shoes are permitted.
Lunch is provided for most Saturday build days; for those Saturdays when lunch is not provided, you will be notified in advance. If you have special dietary needs such as vegetarian, vegan, or severe allergies, it is best to bring your own lunch along. Coffee and water are available on the build site.
HYP will make every effort to notify you in advance of any cancellations. To check for weather cancellations the day of a build, please call the Habitat for Humanity Weather line at 608-255-1549 ext 211. The weather line will be updated by 7:30am of each build day.
It is important that we fill every build day. Please let us know as soon as you learn you will be unable to build by contacting our Volunteer Chair.
