Truckee Meadows Habitat for Humanity is always in need of your help. 

You can contribute by Volunteering at our next event, by

 Donating to or Shopping at ouReStore,

or by helping out at our build site.


Opportunities:

Truckee Meadows Habitat for Humanity needs volunteers throughout the year to help with all sorts of projects.  We need hundreds of volunteers to help out with our projects/events, in the office, in the store and at our constructions sites.


Office help: We occasionally need help in the office for tasks such as filing, phone answering, shredding, data entry, and mailings.


Store help: We always need help sorting, cleaning and pricing new donations.  The store volunteers get to see the new stuff first.  If you like treasure hunting, this might be for you.


Special events: We hold several special events each year. Volunteers are needed to help sign people in, watch auction tables, decorate, plan, call for donations, set-up and take-down.


Board Members: Truckee Meadows Habitat for Humanity has a volunteer-based Board of Directors which runs the organization.  If you would like to make a commitment to our organization at the highest level, this might be for you.


Committee Members: Almost everything we do is done by committee.  Our current committees include:  Fund Development, Financial Committee, and Family Selection.


Construction Volunteering: We always need help at our build site.

Please note when volunteering at our construction sites--

    • No prior construction experience is required to work on any day.  We believe working onsite can even provide a valuable learning experience for those seeking basic building skills.
    • All construction volunteers must be 16 years or older, and 18 years or older to work with power tools.
    • The work day starts at 8:00 AM and typically lasts until 3:00 PM. 
    • Volunteers need to arrive by 7:45 am. Please arrive on time.  This is critical.
    • You should wear sturdy shoes and clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. We suggest hiking or work boots, jeans, t-shirt and a sweatshirt. We will be working outside so please consider the weather.
  • You should bring your own lunch and water.  You are welcome to bring basic tools but Habitat will provide tools as well. We also recommend that you bring your own safety items: gloves, protective eye wear, and a hard hat.

The address is 14221 Stead Blvd, on the left side of the Y at the east end of Stead Blvd.
