Get Involved in Your Community!
We invite members of the community to join us in helping to repair, renovate, and repaint low-income family homes, schools, shelters, community centers, parks, and other vital community spaces at our Open Builds. Please note that while we do not charge you to volunteer with us, we appreciate your donations as they help cover the high cost of supplies and enable us to do more. All projects open to individuals will be posted on the Volunteer Home Page and in our bi-monthly newsletter, The Volunteer View. Click here to Sign-Up
Behrend Builders welcomes groups of any size; we can accommodate groups of up to 200. We can schedule a project for your workplace, school group, sports team, youth organization, alternative spring break group, Bar/Bat Mitzvah group and more! Please note that we may need to charge* group projects a nominal fee to cover the cost of project supplies. Please fill out the Group Volunteer Inquiry below and Tzvi Darling will be in contact you within a few business days.
*We want to work with your group but we do have costs. Please note that there is a $15 charge per person for non-profit groups or organizations and $20 per person for businesses, parties or for profit groups. Please do not let these costs keep you from volunteering. If you have concerns please bring them to our attention when you call to discuss your project.
