Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity

Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity is upgrading some of our technology systems and we are looking for a volunteer to help us with a few tasks within our Point of Sale (POS) system and our Tool Lending Library! If you have ever worked with an e-commerce site it would be somewhat similar.

The role involves the following:

  • Adding descriptions of items for sale within our POS system
  • Creating/editing a menu of items within the POS system
  • Taking pictures of items in our tool lending library that can be checked out
  • Listing items in the tool lending library (knowledge of various tools is a bonus, but not necessary!)
  • Creating and listing items in the tool lending library software

Skills and competencies:

  • Good communication skill
  • Attention to detail

We estimate that the project will take 40-60 hours of time and needs to be completed by April 23rd. GDM Habitat staff will provide training on the systems before turning the project over to the volunteer. Scheduling is flexible, but a preference would be for the work to be completed between 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. so a staff member can assist as needed. Expectations: sign a confidentiality agreement and agree to GDM Habitat's Volunteer Waiver. Please contact Elaine Collet ecollet@gdmhabitat.org for more information.

Mission Statement

Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity partners with God and all members of our community to build simple, decent housing which strengthens families and transforms neighborhoods through homeownership.


Greater Des Moines Habitat For Humanity is a locally operated affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical, Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold with no interest to those in need for the cost of the land and non donated materials at no profit.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Habitat for Humanity. We welcome people from all walks of life to join us as we work to build affordable homes and hope in partnership with God and families in need.

There are many ways to become involved in Habitat's work. Volunteers can help in one or more of the following areas:

Office and Administrative
Facility Maintenance
Family Services
