Volunteer

We welcome volunteers of all backgrounds and all abilities. Email (Habitat for Humanity of Gallup) or call to be added to our group notices about our construction projects or scheduled board meetings and locations. Call 505-722-4226. Meetings are open to the public.

Everyone is welcome to volunteer whenever they are available within all or part of construction hours.

Tools/equipment needed: Work clothing, work shoes & gloves, sunscreen, safety glasses, tools if you have them.
