Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County

What tools/supplies does Habitat provide, and what should I bring with me?

We provide all tools and necessary safety gear you will need, including hard hats, safety glasses, ear plugs, and gloves. Drinking water, first aid kit, and portable restroom facilities are available onsite. All you need to bring is your passion, enthusiasm, and a sack lunch (nothing that needs refrigeration). If a sponsor is providing lunch on your workday, we will let you know ahead of time. We recommend bringing your own work gloves if you have them (for personal preference). However, we have plenty of gloves available for you to use onsite. You’re welcome to bring your own safety gear or tools, too (please, no nail guns). Please write your name on anything you bring with you. Due to the nature of construction work, items do occasionally get lost or damaged and Habitat cannot accept responsibility for your items. For any outdoor activity in the Northwest, it’s a good idea to come prepared for a variety of weather conditions. Sunscreen, sunglasses, a rain jacket, and extra warm clothing are all items that might come in handy.
