Habitat Work Day Information Packet
Thanks for volunteering to work on the Habitat house. We will be building for the Onabanjo family, in Acworth, GA. (Be sure to register for house #3, there are a few houses being built on this street.) You can read about the family by clicking on their picture below.
REGISTER AND SIGN UP FOR WORKDAYS
This year, you must register and sign up online to be able to work on the house. Step by step instructions for doing this are listed farther down this packet. Here are some items to keep in mind:
START/FINISH TIME: The start time is 9:00, but arrive as early as 8:30 if you would like breakfast. The work day will conclude at 3:00.
DIRECTIONS AND PARKING: See farther down in this page for the directions to the site and parking.
DRESS: Wear work boots or sturdy gym shoes; jeans or work clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Bring a hat and wear sunscreen. Loose fitting clothing should be avoided because they can catch on ladders or tools.
WHAT DO YOU BRING?: Habitat – North Central Georgia will provide all of the tools needed. However, you may prefer to bring your own work gloves, tool belt, hammer, pencil and measuring tape. If you do, put your name on anything you want to be sure to get back. Breakfast will be provided starting at 8:30. Lunch will be provided around 12 noon. Water will be available during the day at the site.
BE SAFETY CONSCIOUS!! If you ever have safety questions concerning a task assigned to you, please talk to the house leader or a crew leader. Look before you hammer! Being accidentally hit or hitting someone else with a hammer can be avoided if we are aware of those around us. Only lift loads that you feel comfortable with and use your legs instead of your back. With so many volunteers on site, there are always enough hands to help out. Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day. If you have waited until you are actually thirsty, it is too late! Be aware of your body’s response to high humidity and heat. Do not overwork yourself and rest as needed.
CANCELLATIONS: If the weather is so bad that you don’t want to work, don’t go. Otherwise, if it is unpleasant but tolerable, work will be going on.
