The Rebuilding Center hosts a wide variety of volunteer groups from schools, businesses, organizations and more. All group volunteer projects begin with a tour of our facilities. Volunteer projects vary from day to day depending on what materials have been donated. Common tasks include: unloading donation carts, sorting and organizing tile, trim, miscellaneous hardware and lighting, and de-nailing lumber.

We host groups of anywhere from 5 to 30 people (or larger on a case by case basis). Please complete the Group Volunteer application below at least a week in advance.
