Habitat For Humanity is looking for local volunteers to help with its current Mascotte and Minneola projects. The Mascotte site volunteers an help Wednesday through Saturday at 423 Midway Avenue.

The Minneola location at 106 Silverton Street needs volunteers on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Both sites have supervisors on hand to guide the volunteers through the process.

"Work on each site begins at 8am and ends at 3:30pm with a half-hour break for lunch from12-12:3," explained volunteer coordinator Carlos Beron.

"All necessary tools will be provided. If you have a favorite hard hat, hammer, tool belt or work gloves, please feel free to bring them, but no power tools please."

"Please dress appropriately for both the nature of the work as well as the weather. We recommend that you wear work boots, clothes that you don't mind tearing or staining, a hat and sunscreen," Beron added. "Jeans and a T-shirt are typical volunteer attire. No open-toed shoes, sandals, crocs or heels."

"It is recommended that you leave valuables like purses, watches and jewelry at home. Work on Habitat construction sites goes on rain or shine. If the weather is bad, the work will move indoors and will continue as scheduled. Feel free to bring a rain coat. In the event of extreme weather, contact the Volunteer Coordinator for information regarding possible cancellations."

Habitat will provide water coolers, toilets, construction materials and work supervision. Volunteers must bring their own lunch and provide for their own transportation.
"Volunteers desiring credit for Community Service hours are welcome. Please contact Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter for approval prior to registering," Beron instructed.
