Bring your company, team, organization, or school to Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia for a day of volunteering and fun.

Your group can make an important contribution to Habitat’s mission of building and repairing homes in partnership with families in need.

Groups can volunteer on our construction sites, at the ReStore, or in the Habitat Philadelphia warehouse. More information on each opportunity is below.

 
sponsoring a team volunteer day

Your contribution helps Habitat cover the costs incurred by your team of volunteers and pushes our affordable housing projects closer to completion.

Why do we ask your team to donate? On average, each Habitat house costs $200,000 to build, and each Home Repair project costs an average of $17,500. Individual and group contributions are our most important source of funding, and your donation helps us supply materials, training and supervision. Funds can be raised by individuals, companies, or through matching funds and other grants. We are happy to provide fundraising ideas.

 
 

Standard Build Day

A Habitat Philadelphia Standard Build Day is an out-of-the-box volunteer opportunity on a construction site with limited availability. This option works well for organizations that do not have an existing partnership with Habitat and want to make a connection. Please note due to existing partnerships and commitments, Habitat Philadelphia is only able to offer three Standard Build Day opportunities each year.

Your Contribution: $10,000
Group Size: 10 volunteers
When: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30  p.m.
*all volunteers must stay for the full shift 
Swag and lunch provided

In addition to the hours spent volunteer at a Standard Build Day, your team will also learn more about Habitat from a member of the Leadership Team and a future Habitat Homeowner.

 
 

Team Sponsorship Build Day

A similar experience to a Standard Build Day, but this exclusive opportunity is reserved for long-term partners of Habitat Philadelphia. This volunteer opportunity takes place on a construction site and has more availability throughout the year.

Your Contribution: $5,000
Group Size: 10+ Volunteers
When: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30  p.m.

Adirondack Chair Build

Spend the day in Habitat’s warehouse drilling, operating the team’s chop saw, and building adirondack chairs from deck boards that are given to new Habitat Homeowners and community groups in Philadelphia.

Your Contribution: $5,000
Group Size: 5-10 Volunteers
When: Monday-Friday, 9:30 a.m. – 9:30  p.m.

Team Volunteering at the ReStore

Teams can volunteer at the ReStore!

All ReStore revenue goes towards future homebuilding projects — which means that volunteering at the Restore directly helps us raise money to build more Habitat houses! Volunteers help process, organize and stock donations, and build furniture to be sold.

Your Contribution: $2,500 (full day)/$1,250 (half-day)
Group Size: 5-10 Volunteers
When: Opportunities available Tuesday-Saturday
Lunch provided for full-day volunteers

*Community groups may be eligible to make a contribution on a sliding scale for this opportunity
