Lend Your Helping Hand, Volunteer With Habitat

Since Habitat is a volunteer-driven organization, we rely on volunteers like you in every facet of our operations from producing newsletters, to serving on committees, to helping in the office and ReStore, to working on our construction sites. Indeed without the involvement and support of volunteers there would not be much construction.

To volunteer, please register with Volunteer UP. All of the volunteer opportunities are listed on the VolunteerUP calendar. After you register, you can check the calendar for project dates, sign up for when you want to volunteer, and receive e-mails of volunteer opportunities. If you have questions about any of the opportunities available, please, go to Volunteer UP or call 803-642-9295 x301.

Volunteer for many of the opportunities available.

  • Involve your church, company, and civic organizations. There are many ways groups can help. For example, you can encourage your group to become a sponsor, work on a build or fundraising project, or bring meals to construction workers.
  • Donate items for the ReStore. Donations of furniture, collectibles, working appliances, vehicles, and much more are welcome. Your donations are tax deductible.
