Events & Special Projects

HFH GLA hosts events and special projects year round.  Let us know if you have event planning experience or if you are interested in providing logistical support for events.

Office

Assist in the daily operations of HFH GLA by tracking critical volunteer information, filing, doing data entry and helping our departments as needed in a variety of tasks.  We ask office volunteers to commit to volunteer regularly for two to three months.

Photography

Capture the work of our volunteers on the construction site, in the ReStore and at special events on camera and help us to showcase the work of HFH GLA.  Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and have their own camera.  Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator for more information.

Provide Lunch

Prepare and bring lunch to our hardworking volunteers on our sites Tuesdays through Saturdays.  Volunteers work up quite an appetite and they would appreciate items such as sandwiches, chips, fruit, cookies and other site-friendly food to get them fueled and ready for the afternoon.  Purchase and prepare it at home or buy something pre-made.  Lunches should be delivered by 11:15 a.m.  Please be prepared to bring at least 25 lunches.

Site Hosts

Welcome volunteers to the construction site.  Site hosts create a welcoming environment for all volunteers and make sure that their paperwork is turned in and filed properly.  Site hosts are needed between 7:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays and must be at least 16 years old.

Speakers Bureau
