Get Involved/Volunteer

  • If you use a credit card through the Habitat International site and wish the donation to benefit your local affiliate, be sure to designate, “Lake of the Ozarks Habitat for Humanity” as your affiliate of choice.
  • We currently need people to help at the ReStore working the floor and helping with donation pickups. Volunteer partners provide the bulk of the work when building a house. Some partner on their own and others partner as members of a church group, social club, business and corporate organization or youth ministry. College and high school students are part of the labor partner family. Partner volunteers can be members of the board and serve on committees. Presently we need help at the ReStore in all areas. Donations are another way of partnering with Habitat. You can contribute cash, become a corporate or business sponsor, donate items to the ReStore, or donate property for construction. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call the ReStore Manager 573-317-0470 and leave a message.
