Absolutely not! Everyone is welcome to join Habitat. There are many jobs to do on the work site and not all require advanced skills. Additionally, the trip leaders and site-leaders can help you learn how to do a wide variety of construction tasks.
On Saturdays, we meet in the lobby of Shreve at exactly 8:00am.
You may sign-up for a Construction Trip online by clicking on Construction Signup, or the link located next to our logo to sign up. The list is first come, first served so please plan accordingly. Completed membership form and $20 in dues are required before departure.
We leave from the lobby of Shreve at 8:00 AM and generally leave the site to head back to campus around 4:00 PM.
We go to either the house we are sponsoring in Lafayette, IN to other Habitat chapters in the area.
Anything that would be needed to construct a house. This might include painting, roofing, insulating, digging, drywall, and many other exciting activities.
Lunch is provided. We eat at the afiliate house, or if lunch is not donated we typically order pizza at no cost to the volunteers.
Select Purdue Habitat officers generously donate the use of their personal vehicles to transport the volunteers each weekend.
Nothing but the will to work and appropriate attire, such as closed toe shoes and clothing that you won't mind getting a bit dirty. Make sure to wear layers when its cold.
If you can not make a build please let us know A.S.A.P. This way if there are empty spots we can fill them by contacting other members with available spots. We let the affiliate know how many people we plan on bringing to the builds based on the sign up and if we don't fulfill that then that looks bad on us and Purdue in-general.
