Want to be more involved?
Critical to our success is our core team. Our core team is a group of volunteers that take on a leadership role during our builds and deliveries. At a bed build, they simply provide instruction to our volunteers, oversee tasks and answer questions. It's really easy and no experience or skills are needed, you simply need a big heart and attention to detail. There is no set commitment, if you can help once every month or two that's great, once or twice a month even better. Our events usually take place on Saturday's anytime between 8 am and 3 pm. So what do you think? If you want to join our team or if have more questions click the button below and a member of our team will get in touch with you.Join our Team
