Learn more about Habitat Build Days

Thank you for choosing Habitat Build Days!

Please arrive at the build site no later than 8:30am. Upon arrival, check in with the on-site coordinator.

Remember to check weather for the day and dress accordingly. We encourage you to dress in layers, something always prudent given fluctuations in weather/temperatures and the uncertainty around the work for the day. Long pants are required on Habitat build sites.

Avoid bringing any unnecessary valuables as there may not be a safe place to store them.

All volunteers will be provided with all necessary safety gear upon arrival. If you have your own steel toed boots or work gloves, feel free to bring them. Do not, however, bring any tools.

Should something in your schedule change, preventing you from attending, please let us know. You can reach us via email, build@habitatns.ca or by cell (902) 406-1624.

Finally, please accept our deepest gratitude for making time for this build day, and for helping us “build homes and hope.” We look forward to working with you!
