Lunch Crews Needed

Groups and individuals are needed to provide and service lunches to our volunteer construction crews on Fridays and Saturdays.

If construction is not your thing this is where you can come in handy. If interested in providing a lunch, groups or individuals are asked to provide enough food to feed the volunteers on one house – approximately 30 people. The menu is up to you and can be as simple as pizza or hot dogs, or as fancy as you like, and should include a drink and paper products such as napkins, cups and plates

Lunch donations can also count as 10 hours of community service for work, school or church.

Please see our website, email at or give us a call at 210-223-5203 for more information.

General Information

HFHSA does construction Tuesday through Saturday from 7:45am to 3:30 pm.  Volunteers do not need to have special experience to work on a construction site, but it is always helpful.  Our homes are built on several different build schedules.

The 13-day build is designed to be constructed every Friday and/or Saturday for a total of 13 days of volunteer construction.

The 7-day build is designed to be constructed every Saturday for a total of 7 days of volunteer construction.

Proper working attire will help to make your day more comfortable and enjoyable.  Put your name on all of your belongings, as HFHSA assumes no responsibility for lost, damaged or stolen items.  Other suggested items are plastic drinking cups, work boots, gloves, wide brimmed hat/visor, sunglasses, and sun block. We also have very specific Age Regulations for the Worksite.
