Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity | Washington College

On Saturday, September 7, we will be working on-site at Summer Winds Stables in Worton, MD, a 501(c) non-profit horse rescue and riding therapy facility that also serves as the College’s Western Team’s training facility.  We are excited to have secured such a large project within Kent County that directly benefits one of our own teams.

Thank you for volunteering!

Washington College Habitat for Humanity, in collaboration with the WAC Equestrian Team, and with the sponsorship of WCDS, invites all faculty, staff, students, and alumni to participate in a campus-wide day of community service. 

Online registration is open to the first 200 volunteers, working in two shifts, each 100 people strong — morning and afternoon. Dining Services has graciously agreed to sponsor all snacks, water, and two meals, including a crab feast for dinner!  The first shift will be working from 9AM-12:30PM, with lunch included. The second shift will work from 1:30PM to 5PM, with dinner included. Volunteers may serve for either shift or both, and dedicate the service hours to their chosen SGA-recognized club or organization. Shuttle service for both shifts will be provided, to and from campus.

Please note: A waiver form must be printed, signed, and brought with you on the day of the event to participate.  Once registered, you will receive additional communications about the event. 

By completing this registration, you have agreed to abide by all Washington College and Summer Winds Stables rules and policies for the duration of the work day, Saturday, September 7.  You have also agreed to remain alcohol and drug-free for at least 12 hours prior to the beginning of your shift, until the end of your shift.
A sobriety pledge is standard for all Habitat events, and helps to ensure that we have safe and happy participants.

 

Other ways you can help…

For an event this large to be successful, we need help from a lot of people!  If you are interested in volunteering your help in other ways, please consider these options:
 
Construction Leader - (position filled)
Are you a professional contractor, or even a handy do-it-yourselfer?  We need skilled people to offer guidance on individual projects.
 
Shuttle Bus Driver - (positions OPEN)
Are you a registered College driver? We need help transporting people to the site.
 
Tools, Tools, and More Tools - (still needed!)
Do you have tools that you are willing to lend us for the day?  100 people means that we need lots of tools and materials to go around.
 
Volunteer Tent - (position filled)
More comfortable handling paperwork than a hammer?  We need help managing sign-in, general information, and keeping all of our volunteers happy and productive on event day.
 
Medic/EMT - (position filled)
Do you have EMT training?  Sometimes, accidents do happen, and if you are handy with applying bandaids and ice packs, and removing splinters, we would love to have skilled hands manning a first aid station for the day.
 
Photographers - (position filled)
Do you take great pics?  We want you and your camera to volunteer with us!
 
If you are interested in volunteering your time or tools for any of the above tasks, please contact Max Li (mli2@washcoll.edu) or Maddie Zins (mzins2@washcoll.edu)
