Will lunch be provided?
No, please plan to pack a lunch so that you can stay on site if possible. For corporate or church groups, your group leaders may provide lunch but you’ll need to check with them first.
What if there is inclement weather?
If the weather forecast for your scheduled work day is questionable, we will notify you by text and email of any delays or cancellations before 8 a.m. Our greatest concern is your safety.
For less than optimal weather conditions, we will do our best to find work indoors. If you feel uncomfortable driving to the build site, please stay home and reschedule your volunteer day to a later date.
