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 (napkins, cups and plates).

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

General Information

HFHSA does construction Tuesday through Saturday, 7:45am – 3:30 pm.  No prior construction experience is necessary to help build homes.

Proper attire will 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/water bottles, work boots or tennis shoes, gloves, wide brimmed hat/visor, sunglasses and sun block. We also have very specific Age Regulations for the Worksite.
