Maroon Edition Habitat for Humanity

For the past 11 years, Habitat for Humanity has partnered with hundreds of MSU students, faculty, and staff during the fall semester to build a Habitat home. 

If you are interested in being a part of something meaningful, grab a friend and volunteer to help build the 12th Maroon Edition Habitat for Humanity Home for a local family. No previous experience required! We ask that you please dress comfortably, wear hard sole tennis shoes to protect your feet, bring a water bottle to stay hydrated, and don’t forget your mask. There are volunteer shifts almost every day from August 10th until the end of September. The shifts are 8:00a.m.-12:00p.m and 1pm-5 pm. The work site for this year’s house is 38 Finley Dr. near the Sunset Division, here in Starkville, MS. Volunteer shifts are limited to 10 participants depending on the date and what phase of the house we are working on. Additionally, volunteers are responsible for their transportation.

For information, contact the Habitat volunteer coordinator vc.Starkvillehabitat@gmail.com. For emergency help the day of your volunteer shift, contact construction manager John at (662) 418-6411.

Volunteers must understand that by signing up for this event, we request that you arrive at their designated time to ensure their spot and support the physical distance guidelines in place by our organizers.

Thank you to our partners at Habitat for Humanity for yet again, bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

To safeguard the health of all members of MSU and the surrounding volunteer community during this global pandemic, the Office of Student Leadership and Community Engagement highly recommends following all CDC guidelines, MSU recommendations, and Guidelines for Student Life Activities to engage safely in our events. To mutually protect the MSU community, community partners, and their clientele and provide a safe environment, everyone at this event is required and agrees to practice the following: self-screening, on-site temperature checks, wearing face coverings, frequent sanitization, and social distancing of at least six feet. Also, the university has published requirements for the use of face coverings while on campus. If you cannot wear a face-covering due to a medical condition, request accommodations through the Office of Disability Support Services. We ask that individuals who willingly choose to disregard these recommendations forego registering for the event.
