National Volunteer Week 2019

We're celebrating Habitat Greater Ottawa's #VolunteerFactor!

Three Cheers to Our Volunteers!

National Volunteer Week is a great week to share the #VolunteerFactor we have here at Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa! From April 7th to 13th, we’re taking extra time to thank all of our extraordinary volunteers! We are unbelievably thankful for all the support and assistance we receive from our amazing volunteers. They work hard on the build sites and bring a smile to our ReStores. Many of our operations would not be possible without their help.

Volunteers are the heart of our success. Their hard work and dedication establishes the walls of Habitat homes in the Greater Ottawa community. Their enthusiasm keeps the ReStores running and full of life. Some jobs may seem small, like fixing a lamp at the ReStore or helping give out snacks on the build site, but the impact every task has is huge. Everything our volunteers do makes a difference for a local family in need of a hand-up. So if you see one of our volunteers around, let them know how much their hard work matters. Three cheers to our volunteers!
