Please consider helping us with the following:

  • Volunteer Host at Jennifer Lane on Wednesdays & Saturdays
  • Photographer at the build sites
  • Selling quilt raffle tickets

The Volunteer Host greets construction volunteers on site at 200 Jennifer Lane (Manchester), gets the coffee brewing, and provides refreshments for the 10 a.m. break. Hosting takes about one hour, between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m.

The Photographer takes photos at the build sites and records the names of the folks appearing in each photo for use on Habitat’s website and Facebook page. We are building in Pownal and Manchester (Jennifer Lane).

The Seller of Raffle Tickets sells tickets for a beautiful quilt created by a group of women from the Federated Church of East Arlington and the Second Congregational Church of Bennington and Friends. We are looking for ticket selling venues (events/stores/etc.), as well as volunteers who would be willing to sell tickets at those specific locations and other locations.
