Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to protect our staff and volunteers, only individuals with 100+ hours since last year are able to volunteer. This is at the recommendation of Habitat for Humanity International.

We look forward to welcoming more volunteers in the future. In the meantime, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteers@habitatchoptank.org for ideas on how you can support Habitat Choptank from the safety of your home!

We have many ways you can support Habitat Choptank, even if swinging a hammer isn’t for you!

Construction – Become one of Habitat’s most visible volunteers and work on building or repairing homes. No experience necessary.

Partnership and Homebuyer Support – Become a mentor to Habitat homebuyers and existing Habitat homeowners by mentoring and partnering to provide education and guidance in the different areas of homeowner responsibilities.

Office Help – Office volunteers contribute to our daily affiliate operations by working with Habitat Choptank staff to fulfill regular business and office duties.

ReStore – Help us keep operating costs to a minimum and maximize the profit donated to Habitat Choptank’s mission by greeting and assisting customers, helping at checkout, accepting donations, and general retail support.

Helping from the Comfort of Your Own Home

Dr. Roy T. Smoot Jr. is a regular volunteer on Habitat Choptank’s construction crew in Dorchester County. Roy has continued to support Habitat’s mission — to build homes, communities, and hope — both on and off the job site, at a time when it is needed most.

When Habitat Choptank jobsites closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Roy, like many other volunteers, found himself missing work on the construction site. Roy happened to find a gorgeous table at an antique store in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania and knew he wanted to reimagine it to help Habitat.

Roy and his children, Tom and Rachel, spent their down time amidst the COVID pandemic refurbishing the table to raise money for Habitat Choptank. This table incorporated materials from the Habitat Choptank ReStore and will be on display and available for purchase at Reclaimed in St. Michaels during the month of December 2020.

Roy and his family hope that someone “values it as much as we do and will be willing to make a generous contribution to Habitat Choptank to take it home.” Roy intends for his next project to include working on metal based, hammered black end tables with 2-inch thick live edge black walnut tops.

As Roy and his family demonstrated, there are many ways to support Habitat Choptank from the safety of your own home! Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 410-476-3204 or volunteers@habitatchoptank.org to learn more about how you can get involved.
