Spending time building a home is a great way to volunteer. No experience is necessary. We have a project coordinator on site to show you what to do. All volunteers must be at least 15 years old and have a signed waiver. By calling the Habitat Store at 509-682-7088 you can sign up to volunteer on the current Habitat home.
At our store, stop in anytime during our regular hours and one of our staff would be happy to get you started on a project needed here at the store. be sure to tell us about your special skills and if that is an area you would like to support us in, (certain minors will need a waiver signed by parent or gaurdian)
If you have Community Service obligations we can help you serve those hours also.

"Lift Your Hammer"
Written by Mark Tesch
"Lift your hammer to the sky, raise your hammer high.
Reach out and help your neighbor, who might be barely getting by.
Nail by nail, blow by blow, we'll get there if we try.
Reach your hammer to the sky, raise your hammer high.
Lift that wall, and lift your spirits raise the hammer high.
There's a song in the building, you can hear when you raise your hammer high.
Retirees and high school youth, all raise their hammers high'
Excitement is building, it's the truth so let's all raise our hammers high."
Lake Chelan Valley Habitat for Humanity celebrated the dedication and grand opening of their Thrift Store on Saturday, December 8th, 2007. The Habitat Thrift Store building was funded by the extremely generous donation of the late Margaret Freer. Habitat's Thrift store provides space for an extended assortment of merchandise, including clothing, furniture, books, crafts, linens, tools and appliances.
Donors are asked to call 682-7088 for further information and delivery instructions. If you're looking for a great way to serve your community, refer to donation policy. Please give Habitat a call!
