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 each 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.

Construction leaders provide needed construction and worksite safety training at the beginning of each work shift.

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