Habitat for Humanity-Greater Columbus is looking for volunteers who are willing to brave the winter months to help build homes for low-income families in Franklin County.

Current funding cycles require that home construction projects continue through the winter season. To help recruit volunteers, Habitat has created a new "Winter Warriors" program.

Individuals who volunteer during the months of January through March will receive a Winter Warriors long-sleeve T-shirt. Volunteers who donate 20 or more hours during those months will also receive a Winter Warriors knit hat.

Volunteers are needed for on-site construction shifts from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays. Volunteers are also needed to work 5:30 to 8 p.m. shifts on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

A volunteer orientation will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, at the Habitat offices located at 3140 Westerville Road. Individuals are encouraged to attend a volunteer orientation, but attendance is not required.

To sign up to volunteer, visit www.columbus.volunteerhub.com, or call Habitat at (614) 364-7020.
