Habitat Blitz Build

MTSU's Habitat Build - Fall 2019

The Office of Student Organizations & Service is excited to announce the next Habitat for Humanity Build at Middle Tennessee State University! Beginning September 2019 students can assist with  the MTSU build.

We are looking for student organizations, classes, or groups to sponsor a  shift. If you would like to sponsor a shift, it will be up to you to handle who will work to make certain there are enough people.  

How to Volunteer

Identify a contact person in your group or organization to serve as the liaison for your shift.  We will have one master copy of the schedule in Student Union 330.  You may sign up by writing your group's name next to the date and shift.  Please be confident that you can fulfill the shift you sign up for.  Sign-ups are first come, first serve by walk-in, email, or over the phone.  We encourage you to have several dates in mind before you come to the office.

Location

523 East Castle, Murfreesboro, TN 37130

**Parking is available at the New Hope Church OR please try to carpool.**

Waiver Forms

Every volunteer will need to sign the safety form and the MTSU waiver.  Please bring it filled out on the day you volunteer.  We also have a sign in sheet on the build for every volunteer day.  It is very important that you sign in and out in order to document your volunteer hours.

Important Details

  • Please only recruit/secure the number of volunteers needed. We set each day for a reason.
  • Volunteers must wear close-toed shoes.
