MIDDLEPORT — Habitat for Humanity of Southeast Ohio is looking for volunteers for the upcoming house build starting May 3 on Brownell Avenue in Middleport.

Seven volunteers are still needed for Saturday’s Blitz Build, but multiple volunteers are needed for the 12 weeks following this weekend.

According to Habitat for Humanity of SEO’s Director of Volunteer and Youth Engagement, Barry Unger, volunteers on Friday and Saturday will be framing interior and exterior walls, working on the crawlspace, putting in windows and doors, and completing the siding and shingles. Volunteers throughout the summer will be helping to build decks, handrails, hang drywall, finish drywall, as well as sanding and painting.

“We need their help to make these changes in the community,” Unger said. “So as many hands as we can get is helpful to us and helpful to the family we’re trying to serve.”

If you would like to volunteer, there are options to sign up. Go to www.habitatseo.org and click on the ‘Get Involved’ tab, email volunteer@habitatseo.org, or call 740-592-0032 ext. 104.
