MADISON, NJ - After spending a day at one of the Morris Habitat construction sites, this team from Crossfit Veracity in Madison, NJ showed their enthusiasm for volunteering!  Construction and non-construction volunteer opportunities are available.  Attend one of the monthly volunteer orientations to learn how you can become part of the Morris Habitat volunteer family. 

Right now truck drivers and drivers’ helpers are needed at the Restore.  Volunteers pick up items from donors and deliver them to the Restore where they will be sold, with proceeds going toward building affordable homes for local families in need.

The only requirements to drive a truck are a valid driver’s license and the ability to occasionally lift heavy objects.  Morris Habitat provides the truck (with automatic transmission and lift gate), a GPS, cell phone and schedule. Volunteers are needed Monday-Saturday. You pick the day(s) per week or month that best fit your schedule.
