Description

This Fall, Poppy Barley's Q3 charity partner in Canada is Habitat For Humanity.

Habitat For Humanity’s Edmonton chapter is the largest chapter in Canada. In 2017, as part of Canada’s 150 anniversary, Habitat built 150 new homes in Canada, and 75 of them were in Edmonton and area as part of the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.

On Thursday, September 28th, from 8am to 4pm, the Poppy Barley team will be volunteering at a Habitat For Humanity build in Southeast Edmonton. We have EIGHT spots available for friends/customers to join us!

We'll provide all the details and help you register once your spot is secured. Please read the guidelines outlined by Habitat For Humanity below before registering for a free ticket.

1. Safety Orientations – Your safety is our first concern; therefore, every build site and ReStore conducts a mandatory safety orientation. Please be punctual!

***Due to our safety program anyone who misses the safety orientation will not be able to volunteer that day***

2.Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age

  • Individual volunteers who are 16 or 17 years of age must be accompanied by a participating parent/legal guardian

  • Youth group volunteers have specific supervision requirements that must be met. Contact the Volunteer Department for more information.

3. Volunteers must have the following abilities:

  • Willingness and ability to learn new skills and apply new skills to different situations

  • Ability to follow the instructions of Habitat staff independently

  • Ability to climb stairs comfortably

  • Adequate vision to do detailed work

  • Conversational English

  • Ability to lift and carry at least 15 pounds

4. Working with Habitat for Humanity is often a strenuous and sometimes physically challenging volunteer position – To ensure your safety and that of others on location, we require you to report to the site supervisor or manager anything that will affect your ability to safely perform specific tasks. We do not recommend the build sites or ReStores for people with back problems.

5. Reporting Injuries and Incidents. Each volunteer must take reasonable care to work safely on their own and with other workers present, and to cooperate with Habitat Edmonton when it comes to workplace health and safety. All injuries and incidents must be reported to a Habitat staff member immediately.

6. Transportation and Vehicle Use. Volunteers must provide their own transportation to and from the various Habitat volunteer locations. Habitat for Humanity Edmonton will not reimburse volunteers for travel expenses or mileage.

7. Lunch is provided. For anyone who has allergies or a special diet is recommended that you bring your own lunch and then take part in any part of the group meal which will work for you.

8. Canadian Legal Work Status. Volunteers who are not legally entitled to work in Canada may still be considered through an approval process and on an individual basis. Contact a Volunteer Coordinator at 780-451-3416 for more information.
