lend a hand from home

COVID-19 has changed our ability to host our faithful and energized volunteer force, but there are still plenty of ways you can help from the comfort of your own home.

As time goes on and the future remains unknown, we’ll continue to be creative with Habitat Charlotte Region’s volunteer opportunities from home. We also encourage you to get creative! Feel free to let us know if you can think of other ways to get involved while we’re all safe-at-home

For now, here are a few ways you can help us from a distance:

virtual volunteer opportunities

making masks

For those in staff and regular volunteer roles that are gathering at an office, construction or retail site, we could always use more washable/reusable masks.

Here are a few examples of mask patterns/instructions:

Make a Welcome Home Gift

If you’re a craft-enthusiast or DIYer, you can make a welcome home gift for a Habitat family! Here are just two ideas, but the possibilities are endless!

DIY Doormat

DIY Wreath

Notes of Encouragement

Have you ever received a card or a little note from someone that meant the world to you? It’s a seemingly simple act that can have a profound impact!

Consider writing a note of encouragement to some of our hard-working Homeowners-in-Process. You can share your good wishes or one of your favorite motivational or inspirational quotes.

For questions or to arrange delivery, contact Rachel Eldridge, Director of Volunteer Services, at reldridge@habitatcharlotte.org or 704.716.7077.
