Volunteering for Events
Volunteering with Habitat doesn’t mean just building on a construction site. Flower City Habitat holds several events each year to raise the necessary funds to build homes and to thank the many people who support our mission.
The success of each event is dependent upon the teams of volunteers that organize, plan and implement them. We couldn't continue to have such accomplished events without the help of our passionate volunteers.
We're looking for some volunteers to help us with our largest fundraising event, Roc Properties. The event is on Friday, March 11th, 2016 with volunteers needing to arrive by 4:30pm.
