The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Lunch Sponsors provide on-site lunch for our Saturday build project volunteers! Why we need assistance with lunch... Austin Habitat for Humanity works with well over 8,000 volunteers each year. As a local affiliate, we are responsible for our own fundraising, house construction, family selection, and volunteer recruitment. Unfortunately, our affiliate does not have sufficient funds allocated to provide lunch to all of our volunteers on a regular basis. Lunches served on-site allow our volunteers to experience a sense of fellowship and allow for more productivity throughout the workday. We would like you to participate in this program to further your knowledge of Habitat for Humanity, to contribute to a charitable organization, and give back to the community. Commitments range from providing lunch once to "adopting" a crew to feed weekly, bi-weekly or monthly
